Beautiful flight of a Greenfinch

I like to netting birds at my feeder but even more to get news about them afterwards. BTW it's the first such great control of my over 300 colour-ringed Greenfinches. Had captured 6YR (an adult, female) on the 30.10.2011 in Stargard Szczecinski, Poland and more then 4 mounths later Lars Jonsson (author of the fieldguide Birds of Europe) found it at his garden in Gotland, Sweden.

The Greater White-fronted Goose (Anser albifrons) with neckbank

Today i observed a big flock of Barnacle Goose (136 birds) in Obryta near Miedwie Lake. See the short movie. BTW read the White-fronted Goose with lime neckband. I've chceked already the "Tracking Marked Geese" website and found the map with previous reports - amazing! see below.
