fishing for geese
During the nest checks, I discover a male goose with geolocator, which is very protective about the newly hatched goslings. I will try to catch this male, with my fishing rod.
|I managed to get the rope around the neck. Next a quick pull and the geese is caught.|
|I quickly remove the string from the neck.|
|I turn the goose on its back|
|And remove the logger which is attached to the white ring with red inscription|
|Not everybody is happy to see me. Geese were used in ancient Rome to guard the city.|
