    Put some pictures of it on Please.

    I've shot several Pink's and Whitefronts with what you describe ( Big Neck Collar ) but none with a satellite tag also the metal leg ring should have details who and where to contact

    When you get the results of the ringing and sat tag , please share them on here. 

    Bet the info will be fascinating , migration route , stop overs nesting and moulting areas. 

    A kid in the village found a white front neck ring on the shore and the info they got was amazing.

    I saw the post on facebook - what was the story with the protestors?

    They had walked out onto the mud and to there hut with high viz vests on and then the geese in that area lifted the small skein this was in broke off but then seemed to want to follow the larger skein back out onto the bay which brought them just close enough for me to get a single shot at bang on 0755 the usual time they get pushed off if it's low tide and protesters are out on the mud ad the rest were still in middle of the bay when I left around 0900

    Any photos?

     

    do you have to deal with the protesters often?

    Trying to put a photo on just now they are always there just trying to antagonize us but they mostly stuck to one area and I was further around but could still see them through binoculars

    That goose should have bee relatively easy to shoot if it had a solar panel attached to it.

    We are all looking forward to hearing all about the goose when you make contact with the ringers or trackers.

    If it's been tagged for a few years the info will be great even from the neck ring but the sat tag assuming it was working should provide reallly accurate details.

    i will see if I still have the white front records and info from the neck ring the kids found and post them.
