DescriptionBird data recorded as part of the knowledge base for an impact assessment of Kopperå wind farm in Norway. The field personell walked transects and noted every species and the total number of species.
Study ExtentData was recorded from 2012-06-13 to 2012-06-15 in Meråker, Trøndelag, Norway.
SamplingTwo investigators walked through the terrain and stopped at watching points (see footprintWKT), and recorded species name and number of all birds observed both on the walk between points and from watching points. The transects were not strict defined, but rather "fuzzy transects" where the two investigators followed to terrain with the aim of covering most of the designated area. Investigators walk during daytime for 8-10 hours all of the three days in field.
