The first goose catch. We are catching a flock of 26 non-breeding birds at Solvatnet. They have started moulting as non-breeders usually start two weeks earlier than succesfull breeding birds. This small flock is ideal, to learn everyone in the team what is expected during the catch.

On the top picture Maarten is overlooking the fjord. The geese did not want to leave the lake easily. They knew that a fox was hiding there. It took one of the adults, but Maarten was able to chase it away. The adult gTAN survived and Maarten is carrying it now to be measured.
