Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The data were 'eyed in' at the Australian Antarctic Data Centre based on field observations made by Eric Woehler. More specific details follow. The location of Adelie Penguin colonies on Shirley Island and a Snow Petrel colony on Budnick Hill, Casey Station were 'eyed in' using a sketch by Eric Woehler in February 1999 as a guide. The location of an Adelie Penguin colony on Ford Island was 'eyed in' using a sketch by Eric Woehler in September 1999 as a guide. The location of some flying bird colonies in the Frazier Islands were 'eyed in' in December 2001 based on advice from Eric Woehler. The locations of Southern Giant-petrel colonies on the Frazier Islands in November 1983 and December 1989 were 'eyed in' using the figures in the following paper as a guide: Woehler, E.J., Martin, M.R. and Johnstone, G.W. (1990). The Status of Southern Giant Petrels at the Frazier Islands, Wilkes Land, East Antarctica. Corella. Vol 14, No 4.
