Third barnacle goose catch

1 August 2020

Today, we start catching goose families. We still have 9 GPS neck collars to attach to specific families. The geese are cloe to the London houses and while the whole team is discussing possibilities, it happens outside. The geese are so close, that it is a simple catch in foggy weather. Than we have to wait for two hours so the geese emty their intestines and we can ring and measure them without their faeces all over the place.
The weather improves and it is warm. Two geese have problems with the heat, but after the catch we all observe them healthy and fine.
Standing for two hours, to watch the geese in the pen and make sure that they do not harm themselves on the net. The ground is becoming green from goose faeces.
