Goose catching

18 June 2016

We planned some goose catching but it did not work. We tried 8 nests each for at least one hour. Six females did not return to the nest. Two did but still we could not catch them. After a long day, Margje and Danny go home with Børge, Wenzel and Maarten go in the small zodiac.
