The rest of the crew is outide collecting data. Margje videos geese with a gps-neckband which also stores movement of the collar data. She will correlate the movement with different behaviours. With a good calibration, she can translate the signals to a full sweet of activities.
Susanne is watching tern nests. The terns are not too friendly. You need a thick hat against dive bombing terns but also a rain coat to collect the tern shit. Samples of the shit will be analysed for microbes by Akish.
Christophe, Maaike, Lisa and Anna Gomez sample a lake and find a lot of second generation waterfleas. They have protected themselves with feathers of moulting barnacle geese.
