Vantage Point - Flight Data

The vantage point flight data provides observations of species moving from one observation sector to another at a given date and time.

The columns included in the dataset are:
Date: Date of observations. Format is yyyy-mm-dd
VP Start: Start time of all vantage point observations (flight, count, disturbance)
VP End: End of all vantage point observations
Observer: Initial of the observer
VP: The Vnatage point location (see Vantage Point resource for location data)
Flight Watch: The onset time of 1 hour flight watch
Flight watch end: The end time of flight watch
Obs time: Time of record
BTO Species Code: 2 letter species code used by British Trust for Ornithology (see )
Species Name: Common name of species
Scientific Name: Scientific (latin) name of species
No: Number of the given species observed performing the flight at the given time
From: The Start Observation sector in which flight started
To: The Observation sector in which the birds settled (not OUT means the bird(s) either arrived from outwith or left the observation area)
The observation areas describes a 90 degree arch split in a left and right 45 degree arch. The number indicates distance from vantage point (0-250m, 250-500m, 500-1000m, and 1000-2000m). This R3 indicates the righthand observation sector with a distance beetween 500 and 1000m from the vantage point.
Please consult the report methodology section for detail on the observation areas and methodology.
