Elise Biersma joined me on a nest check on Storholmen and she made me and my geese into glamourous models.
It is peak hatch on the islands. Wet goslings have just broken out of the egg, while dry goslings are ready to leave the nest.
Sometimes part of the goslings want to leave the nest on our approach. Here I re-unite the family.
Geese make pairs for life. Here you see how they share their emotions. All geese are ringed and we study the cooperation within the pair.
