First goose catch

20 July 2018

Our first goose catch is close to Sagbruk. There is a rain forecast and if needed we can seek shelter. During the preparation of the nets, the geese were resting closeby at the pond. When we were ready, the geese started to move and we caught them with three people, Armin, Jelle and Maarten. These are the only five families which are in town. It is always good to have a seperate catch of families and failed or no-breeders.Pictures by Armin Elbers.
