Abstract

One juvenile female red kite was tracked during 2011-2013. The bird was tagged with a leg-mount radio transmitter in a nest in the Záhorská nížina Lowland in western Slovakia. Movements were monitored in the natal area and in the temporary settlement area (TSA). These areas were 40 km apart. The location of the TSA in the border zone ofAustria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic confirmed information about the wintering of local birds in the region. The temporary settlement area (MCP = 402.0 km2, 95% FKP = 622.8 km2, 50% FKP = 68.6 km2) was mainly situated in Austria. The natal area was significantly smaller (MCP = 34.7 km2, 95% FKP = 32.3 km2, 50% FKP = 5.0 km2). The juvenile hunted an average of 12.5 km from the communal roost place.
