Survey data from Monks Wood, Cambridgeshire, UK

These datasets are from long-term studies of biodiversity and habitat at Monks Wood National Nature Reserve, in eastern England, but also including other nearby woods in Cambridgeshire. The studies focused on the ecology of woodland birds, particularly studies of Marsh Tits (Poecile palustris), Blue Tits (Cyanistes caeruleus) and Great Tits (Parus major). We recorded territory and breeding data, and also data for the vegetation structure and composition in the woodland habitat. Data collection was funded by the NERC National Capability programme and began in 1993, with the same team of scientists using consistent methods throughout this time.
