AGM & Bob Swann – Red-breasted Geese in Bulgaria
The trials and tribulations of trying to catch Red-breasted Geese in Bulgaria and the subsequent fascinating results from this work.
Based in Tain, Ross-shire, Bob has been a member of the SOC since he was a school boy in Edinburgh. He has been a keen birder ever since and between 2007-11 was Scottish organiser of the Bird Atlas project. He is secretary of the Highland Ringing Group and has been involved in long-term studies of seabirds on Canna, raptors in Easter Ross and waders and wildfowl in the Moray Firth. This included a study of the movements of Icelandic Greylag Geese, which led him to being invited by WWT to try and catch Red-breasted Geese in Bulgaria.
