GPS tracks of Cory’s shearwater fledglings in relation to light pollution in Tenerife Canary Islands

Resource Description
Movement trajectories in the synchronicity of ten Cory’s shearwater Calonectris borealis fledglings tracked with GPS-GSM devices. Ring refers to the unique ring codes of the birds. The animation shows the irradiance values (nW/cm2/sr), as a proxy of light pollution (bluish), taken from a cloud-free composite of VIIRS nighttime lights corresponding to November 2019. Animations were built with the package moveVis of the R statistical software ( Schwalb-Willmann et al., 2020) and they are part of Rodríguez et al. (2022) study.
