This database describes the occurrence and behaviour of Gadwall and Teal in three areas, each with their own bank length, habitat surface and typology, along a salinity gradient with variable food availability. Ship counts were done at different times in the tidal cycles. A detailed habitat map was made of each area in Arc-view.
