Example of representative tracks of a single mallard per study landscape (left; ca. 15 days per track) and the use of core areas in the landscapes of all tracked individuals separated between day (light parts in pie charts) and night (dark parts; right panels). The size of the pie charts is scaled to the relative number of GPS fixes recorded in the core areas. OA = Oud Alblas, TN = Terra Nova, JP = Juliusput, EV = Enterveen. Note the differences in scale: mallards at Oud Alblas use a much smaller part of the landscape around the main roost than do mallards at Enterveen. Left panels are zoomed in on the individual tracks. The maps show water (light blue), arable land (yellow), pastures (light green), forest (dark green), roads (dark lines) and buildings (black dots)
