Third goose catch

30 July 2018

Our third goose catch is moulting adults at Thiisbukta. With four kayaks and a boat, we bring the geese to the catch area. Thank you Jon and Piotr for helping us. After the catch, we wait for two hours so the geese can get rid of all faeces, before we ring them.
A team of students from Switzerland and television visit us to hear about our research and climate change. They help with processing the birds and make interviews while we are ringing and measuring.

Sanne and Marlon are doing the tunnel test. We release the birds through a dark tunnel and measure the time the geese need to come out of the tunnel. It is an attempt to measure personalities.
