Birds History at Denmark

Latest version published by Test Organization #1 on Aug 31, 2019 Test Organization #1

This dataset contains specific occurrence records and notes on bird species that extracted from the multiple volumes of Lodbjerg Fyr and Hanstholm Fyr 1883-1939” (i.e. “Birds at the Danish Lighthouses 1883-1939”) (In Danish, ‘ Fuglene ved de danske Fyr, 1883–1939’). The Natural History Museum of Denmark (NHM-DK) is a research center associated with the University of Copenhagen has started mobilization of the information contained in these volumes namely to preserve their contents for the future and provide online access for everyone. With the involvement of DanBIF, there is intent to publish and register the resulting extracted data with GBIF. In the period 1883-1939, there were 45 lighthouses and lightships functioning in Denmark. These lighthouses were used by several species of birds during the nights of the bird migration period from the years 1886 through 1939. The presence and activities of these birds were recorded, especially by the keepers of these lighthouses who also collected specimens that were sent to the museum in Copenhagen. These birds were carefully preserved and cataloged by collection managers at the museum and the specimens can still be found there today. Observations of weather conditions during the nights when birds were observed by the keepers were also documented.
