Adelie penguin occupancy survey of Bechervaise Island and Kista Rock, 2013
Entry ID: AAS_4088_Adelie_occupancy_Bechervaise_Kista_2013


Summary
Abstract: Six colonies with breeding Adelie colonies were mapped this season on Kista Island. On Bechervaise Island subcolonies C and R were not mapped and so are missing from the final layer, but birds were present in these subcolonies. Subcolonies were mapped by circumnavigating the perimeter of sub-colonies on foot while carrying a Garmin GPS (Legend Cx) to log the track taken. The person walking the perimeter of the sub-colonies maintained a buffer distance of approximately 2.5m between themselves and the breeding birds along the sub-colony boundary. This buffer distance was reduced to approximately 2m in the final shapefiles.
