Fourth goose catch
4 August 2020
We still have to attach 4 GPS neck collars. So we plan a fourth barnacle goose catch. It is a foggy morning but we locate the geese behind the village and are able to bring them to the nets.|
We get help from the local biologist of Sysselmannen: Fredrik Samuelsson. He helped as a student with a UNIS catch on Storholmen several years ago.
It is always a nice moment when we can release the geese again.
