The data on hoverfly orientations was collected by vertical-looking entomological radars based in southern UK. These radars are an established tool for collecting insect flight behaviour, and the methodology is described in detail in the associated publication and other related papers found in the bibliography. The dataset consists of a list of migration track directions, flight headings, and moveemnt speeds for all mass hoverfly migrations analysed in this study, and also the wind speed and direction on these occasions.
The data is straightfoward to interpet and use.
