Table 2 Home range size of Red Kite females and their breeding success calculated for the period when large young are in the nest plus the post-fledging dependent period

From: GPS tracking of Red Kites (Milvus milvus) reveals fledgling number is negatively correlated with home range size

Transmitter no. Time frame when large young are in nest plus post-fledging dependent period (50 days) No. of GPS fixes Home range (km2) MCP 95 % (km2) No. of fledged young

  1. If transmitter fitting took place before this period, the number of days prior to this is shown in parentheses. The area size calculated by the MCP 95 % method is also shown as an alternative. The number of fledged young is shown as minimum values (≥) when it was not possible to access the nest
