Data from: Effects of experimental night lighting on the daily timing of winter foraging in common European songbirds

Arnaud Da Silva, David Diez-Méndez & Bart Kempenaers
The ecological effects of light pollution are becoming better understood, especially in birds. Recent studies have shown that several bird species can use street lighting to extend activity into the night during the breeding season. However, most of these studies are correlational and little is known about the effects of artificial night lighting on the timing of activities outside the breeding season. During winter, low temperatures and short days may limit foraging opportunities and can...
