Description Records refer to species occurrence data collected from museum collections, the literature, ornithological atlases, bird ringing programmes or ornithological trip report websites. Records which could be at least approximately dated and georeferenced are contained in a comma delimited text file. The file gives information on the data source, the year of the record, the species the record relates to, the threat status of the species, the country the record is from and whether the record came from inside a protected area. The column names are mostly self-explanatory. In cases where an exact year of record was not known, a date range is given. For example, ‘Pre 1980’ would indicate a record from 1979 or earlier. Similarly, ‘Post 1980’ would indicate a record from 1981 or later. For the column ‘Threatened?’, ‘0’ indicates a non-threatened species and ‘1’ a threatened species. For the column ‘Inside a Protected Area?’ ‘0’ indicates the record is from outside a protected area and ‘1’ inside a protected area.
