  1. *Represents tags with “fast” transmission rate versus **tags with slow repetition rates. Proportion of location class (LC) 2/3 represents the proportion of location classes 2 (< 250–500 m) and 3 (< 250 m) within the first 24 h. The first location and deployment distance designates the distance between the first computed location we obtained via satellite and the deployment site along with the resulting location class
