RSPB tracking (FAME & STAR)

The dataset contains locations at sea for five seabird species (fulmar, European shag, black-legged kittiwake, common guillemot and razorbill) tracked using GPS tags over several years at breeding colonies across the UK. The data were collected during the course of two large-scale collaborative projects: FAME (Future of the Atlantic Marine Environment) and STAR (Seabird Tracking and Research) coordinated by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
