Capercaillie national surveys
This dataset contains the first to fourth surveys of Capercaillie <i>Tetrao urogallus</i> in Britain, carried out under the Statutory Conservation Agencies/RSPB Annual Breeding Birds Scheme (SCARABBS).
Capercaillie distribution in Britain is restricted to Scotland where it is closely associated with Scots Pine <i>Pinus sylvestris</i> and Blaeberry <i>Vaccinium myrtilus</i>. Therefore the national survey was concentrated in Scotland. <br /><br />
All records in this dataset are collated with summary 100m grid references.
Data have been thoroughly checked for geographical and other errors. Please see the additional information sources for a detailed discussion of the survey methodology.
Methods for each survey are different, though allowing comparability between surveys. See survey metadata for further details on methods of data capture.
