Temporal autocorrelation, shown with 5% significance limits (dashed lines), of movement metrics for each study animal. The temporal lag is equivalent to the fix interval of 4 h. All study animals showed some degree of autocorrelation in the speed of movements, though males (top two panels) less so than the females (bottom four panels). Very little autocorrelation occurs across all the study animals for turning and straightness of movements. The site fidelity measure succeeds in showing this strong temporal autocorrelation in movements
