grass growth

23 July 2018

Every week, we measure growth of marked grass shoots aroound the village. Marlon de Haan has this task. Armin is writing. Normally the families have to move far from the lakes into town to eat from the protein rich grass. For the goslings it is essential to eat this nutritious food. But this year there are very few goslings and most geese are without young. Those birds can live on a moss diet during moult and loose weight to provide fuel for their new feathers. As a consequence, there is relatively long grass in the village.
