This Blog is dedicated to Brent Goose - the smallest and northernmost breeding goose in the World, and the one that also undertakes some of the longest non-stop journeys of any goose species in the World. It was launched with our Brenttags project in May 2011 - funded by the Norwegian Directorate for Nature Management. Blog revived with the successful addition of 9 satellite tagged birds in May 2012. All pictures can be seen in a higher resolution by clicking on them.

2 June: Loff second bird climbing over the mountains
Loff departed 30 May at 4:00 - and took the route via Oslofjorden and over the mountains just as Fridtjof. Arrived 2 June at 14:00 on Edgeøya, and was therefore also the second bird going east this summer.
