Data for observations of peregrines from the French Jura mountains

Description

The data are detection/nondetection data of the Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) from the wild and wonderful French Jura between 1964 and 2016 for 284 cliff sites (= territories, or sites in the context of a site-occupancy model) where a pair had been detected at least once in this period. A large proportion of sites are visited multiple times per year, but unfortunately only the aggregate results are available in each year, i.e., whether a pair was detected at least once, or never.
