Lineage The dataset records the number of incubating birds and chicks using land photography and remote observation (binoculars) as means of observation. An estimate of the breeding success is also given. In early January 2016 incubating birds were counted in Ship's Harbour Island via photo-based census. A bird sat on the nesting area was considered incubating. When two birds were sitting immediately next to each other they were considered a pair and only one was counted. In the North End they were counted from approximately 200 m of distance, for avoiding disturbance, using 10x42 binoculars. It is hard to rule out the possibility of overestimation of incubating birds in the Ship's Harbour Island. At the end of February 2016 other pictures from the colony in Ship's Harbour Island were taken and the colony in the North End was visited. Chicks were counted.to estimate the breeding success of both colonies.
