abstract

We studied Greylag Goose Anser anser nest distribution in relation to reed stem density in the Tgmmerby Fjord reedbed, Denmark, using rial photography to locate nests . Digitised photographs were used to establish a relationship be tween spectral signature and reed stem density. This technique classified 71% of calibration nest sites correctly regarding reed stem density, and most misclassifications had stem density values near the boundary between density classes . When app lied to all 170 identified nest sites; 84% were located in low-density reedbeds
