Crop damage and management of the Pink-footed Goose Anser brachyrhynchus in Denmark

Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) Science Article 3 abstract More than 25 000 Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus migrate through and stage on sites on the West Coast of Jutland in Denmark every year in autumn and spring. There is currently concern at the rate of loss of suitable staging habitats, as well as problems of conflict […]

Spring migration strategies in Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus an d consequences for spring fattening and fecundity.

Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) Science Article 1 abstract Individu al variation in spring migration strategies was analysed for neckbanded Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus migrating from Denmark (D) via stopover sites in the Trondheimsfjord area (T) in mid-Norway and Vesteralen (V) in northern Norway to the breeding grounds in Svalbard, 1990-97 . Body condition of marked […]

Diet and habitat use of Svalbard Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus during arrival and pre-breeding periods in Adventdalen.

Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) Science Article 4 abstract The feeding behaviour of Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus was studied in Adventdalen, Svalbard during 15-28 May 2004 to determine habitat use of newly arrived birds based on their distribution in relation to the major vegetation types present. Goose numbers increased from initial arrival on 15 May to […]

Pink-footed Goose Anser brachyrhynchus (Greenland/Iceland population) in Britain1960/61-1999/2000

Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) Science Article 2 abstract This report examines changes in the abundance and non-breeding distribution of the Greenland/Iceland population of Pink-footed Goose Anser brachyrhynchus during the period 1960/61 to 1999/2000. It also aims to evaluate the historical status of this population, to review published information on the ecology, population dynamics and conservation […]

Intake rates, stochasticity, or onset of spring-what aspects of food availability affect spring migration patterns in Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus?

Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) Science Article 6 abstract Long-distance bird migration consists of several flight episodes interrupted by a series of resting and refuelling periods on stopover sites. We assessed the role of food availability as the determinant of staging decisions focusing on the following three aspects of food availability: intake rates, stochasticity in intake […]

Pre-nesting site use of satellite transmitter tagged Svalbard Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus.

Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) Science Article 5 abstract We deployed satellite transmitters (PTTs) to Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus to discover pre-nesting sites on Svalbard. 14 adult male were caught in Vest Stadil Fjord, Denmark and fitted with PTTs powered by batteries (n = 11; 30 g) or by solar power (n = 3; 45 g), […]

Month to month changes in age ratio and brood size in Pink-footed Geese Anser brachyrhynchus in autumn

Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) Science Article 7 abstract The conservation and management of wild goose populations requires an accurate estimate of productivity to be made each year, usually soon after the birds’ arrival in the wintering grounds. The best time to make the estimates is not always clear, however, since the measures used may vary […]
