GPS tracking data for 32 individual European nightjars in Humberhead Peatlands NNR from 2015-2018

This dataset contains GPS data fixes (WGS84 format) from 32 European nightjars (Caprimulgus europaeus) . The data contains additional information on identity of the bird, date, time of fix acquisition, and the associated site and night number (between 6 and 17 nights of data, varying between individuals). These data were collected on the Humberhead peatlands NNR, South Yorkshire, from 2015 until 2018. Birds were caught in mist nets and tail-mounted miniaturised GPS tags (Pathtrack, Otley, UK; <3% bird bodyweight) were fitted by BTO-licensed researchers.

Data were collected as part of a NERC ACCE-funded PhD.
