27 April: First you have to catch them

And that is not always easy. In 2010 we tried for two weeks without luck - so it was a great pleasure when our chief cannon-net technician Jens Peder Hounisen pressed the button and caught the first 19 geese at Mågerodde on the island of Mors, Denmark, in the evening of 27 April 2011. All were ringed with an individial colour-ring combination and 30 g solar GPS PPTs from Microwave Telemetry was fitted to four selected males.
