Information on capercaillie distribution collected during the 'Productivity of breeding Capercaillie Tetrao urogallus at sites across their Scottish range
Records of capercaillie collected during the project. Sex and brood size is also recorded.
Selected forests were surveyed across Perthshire, Strathspey, Deeside, Donside and Easter Ross. Exact eastings and northings are given for each record.
There is high confidence in the data which was collected by experienced ecologists and dog handlers for a specific project.
Pre-determined areas within forests were surveyed using experienced dog handlers with a pair of trained pointing dogs wearing global positioning system (GPS) or beeper collars. The locations of capercaillie were recorded using handheld GPS and plotted on 1:25,000 Ordnance Survey maps with the age and sex class of each individual.
