LifeWatch observatory data: GPS tracking network for large birds
Abstract in English
In the framework of the Flemish contributions to the LifeWatch infrastructure, a high-tech sensor network was installed to better monitor the habitat use and migration patterns of large birds, such as the European Herring Gull (Larus argentatus Pontoppidan, 1736), the Lesser Black-backed Gull (Larus fuscus Linnaeus, 1758) and the Western Marsh Harrier (Circus aeruginosus (Linnaeus, 1758)). The research is led by INBO, in collaboration with the Terrestrial Ecology Unit (TEREC) at the University of Ghent, and the University of Amsterdam (UvA, LifeWatch coordinator in the Netherlands). The Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) participates in the installation, maintenance and data flows of the sensor network. All equipment is developed by the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) at the University of Amsterdam: the Bird Tracking System (UvA-BiTS).
