The Nordic Greylag Goose (Anser anser) Project.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


Neck-banding of Greylag Geese in the Nordic countries was initiated in 1984 by
the Nordic Council for Wildlife Research as there was a need for a thorough knowledge of various aspects of the population ecology and migration patterns of the populations in different parts of the four countries. Since the start in 1984 more than 6400 Greylag Geese have been neck-banded, yielding more than 250,000 readings in our files. The present contribution gives an update of results presented in Andersson et al. (2001) with the special aim to elucidate
changes in the migration patterns over the study period for the Greylags from SW Scania and Norway, respectively. Through the years both groups have changed their migration pattern, migrating south later and north earlier. In addition a greater proportion is now wintering further north than when the project started.
