Wintering Greylag Geese Anser anser in North-Africa.

Greylag Goose (Anser anser) Science Article 3

abstract

Goose counts at the three major wintering grounds of North Africa from 1981/82 to 1988/89 are presented and discussed. The origin of the Greylag Geese wintering there is documented by individually marked geese. These neck-banded geese also proved that movements occur between Tunisia and Algeria and supported the ideas about the border line between the Atlantic and Central European flyways. Finally information on the feeding habits of the geese in North Africa is given.
