Soval is yet to transmit in 2017; the map will update if and when he does. Our woodcock can disappear for months at a time when their solar-powered tags run out of power, only to reappear in the spring as the days get longer, exposing them to enough light to start transmitting again.

Soval is kindly sponsored by:
