Positive balance on the results obtained from the first year of experimentation on the use of the new ones satellite transmitters installed on subjects of song thrush for the purpose of determining the start dates of the pre-wedding migration. In fact, four subjects of song thrush were "marked" by theNational Federcaccia Studies and Research Office in collaboration with the University of Milan. The subjects made it possible to obtain useful information on migration and the return to the breeding grounds.
Also this year the project continues. The good functioning of the transmitters and the importance of the data that will be fundamental also for the support of hunting calendars and for the defense of the sampling times of the species, encourage the continuation of a qualified and innovative project from a technical and scientific point of view.
Based on these considerations and to allow concrete support for research, the Confederation of Tuscan Hunters jointly with the presidency of Federcaccia Toscana, it approved an economic contribution aimed at the purchase of additional transmitters to increase the number of monitored subjects (source: Hunting Federation).
