Catching geese

20 July 2011 16:00

We have put up the nests between the London houses in such way, that we can catch geese from the front and the back side. We are aiming for small family groups which come into the village. When we catch a few families at one time, processing is fast and the young goslings can be released quickly. From left to right: 1. the adults are left in the catch pen, while 2. the goslings are put together. Nicole makes sure they are well. 3. Maarten is ringing a gosling.
To te left and below: release.
