Motion-activated camera trap images from the ECN Cairngorm long-term monitoring site, 2010-2022

Motion activated camera traps were installed in pine woodland and regenerating heathland from 2010 as part of UK Environmental Change Network long-term monitoring in the Allt a'Mharcaidh catchment, Cairngorms National Park, Scotland.

The image catalogue contains 8050 wildlife images identified to species or group where possible. This forms part of the accompanying dataset which includes information on over 66,000 classified images, recording the presence of blank (empty) images, wildlife, people, dogs and mountain bikes. Furthermore it includes group identification where a series of images occur within five minutes of each other.

This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability.
