1955-2022 Capercaillie Casual Records, Scotland
This dataset contains casual sightings of capercaillie from a variety of observers (including capercaillie staff, stakeholders and general public) throughout the year, including through the Cairngorms Capercaillie Project app (from 2021-2023). Most of the records are from 1989 onwards. Casual sightings of signs during the National Surveys are recorded here but the records of bird seen during these surveys are found in separate National Survey datasets.
COVID-19 restrictions limited survey season in 2020. Therefore, there are only a limited number of records from 2020.
These data have been gathered by trained field-workers so the data are of high quality.
