Students of the University in Svalbard UNIS join me in a goose catch as part of their field excursion. They have arrived with their own boat. Thursday is a rainy day so they are sampling transects near Solvatnet and at the front of a retreating glacier. Friday the weather improves. After a lecture on the boat, we are going out to catch geese. We are with enough people to walk the geese towards the net.
