Grazing geese

12 August 2010 21:33

The presence of the arctic fox has kept the geese away from the den. Now when the season ends, it is the only remaining place with abundant grass. The geese face the danger and dare to come close.
The geese are restless. They peck enomous fast but also interact and chase competitors away. The families mingle and it is difficult to obtain proper family size. So I made a video. Suddenly all geese run towards the lake but it is a false alarm. No fox.....yet.

This video gives a good impression about our obervations. Note the ringed geese in the flock.
