Greylag Goose catching in NL
11 June 2010 12:38
In the Netherlands, we collect blood from breeding geese for our research into the role of diseases and parasites in bird populations.
This project BIRDHEALTH focusses on arctic breeding birds, but we use temperate breeding geese for comparison.
Here I am joining Berend Voslamber, who travels for weeks along various Greylag breeding sites to ring geese with neck collars.
I started in 1988 this project. Now there is a large ringing effort to support local management decisions. This greylag goose
has received a neck collar and is weighed. Sightings by observers are reported to the site www.geese.org.
