Guide to Seawatch Data
(Harry’s comments) The spreadsheet has had babies as there are now six sheets. The first just deals with this survey. The second lists all the species I have seen together with the highest daily count for each. The third is just for me it lists from January 1st the additions to the list. The fourth is important as it now details the 76 counts that I carried out at Canaveral National Sea Shore in the 1990’s (in the second spreadsheet I compare the highest counts from both sites). I am rooting for the left hand columns! The fifth is a notes box to detail things numbers cannot describe. The sixth sheet gives sightings for species seen five or less days.
The first annual compilation is now complete for 2016, with text and illustrations.
The spreadsheet is 6 sheets deep.
Sheet 1 is the daily species count for all observation days. Below the daily tallies are the totals to date and a list of additional sitings - Mammals reptiles, etc. The first seven columns are the tallies from the HRA Christmas Bird Count. (FYI) Very interesting
Sheet 2 gives the highest daily count for every species. To the right are the 1990's sea watches at Canaveral National Seashore for a comparison.
Sheet 3 lists all the additional species added this year.
Sheet 4 is the spreadsheet for the Canaveral National Seashore
Sheet 5 is monthly commentary highlighting trends and unusual sitings.
Sheet 6 gives all the sightings for those species that I have seen on five or less dates.
In addition to the spreadsheet, each Month Harry provides a newsletter with a short synopsis of his observations and comments on trends and unusual sightings.
