Data on concentrations of PBDEs found in the livers of 59 sparrowhawks that had died in the UK between 1998 and 2009. Samples were selected from the Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme (PBMS) Archive. Archived livers from birds that had died between 1998 and 2009 from central England, directly east and within 250 km of the Welsh border, were analysed. Data are presented as one table and two supporting files containing metadata. The Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme (PBMS) is a long-term, national monitoring scheme that quantifies the concentrations of contaminants in the livers and eggs of selected species of predatory and fish-eating birds in Britain.
