Brent Geese Tagging Project
This is our second year to tag brent geese in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown. We have had a successful round of tagging just before christmas in 2019 and will continue in Jan 2020. DLR's Biodiversity officer would like to thank the members of the public who assisted her in Kilbogget Park with some wonderful but stubborn brent geese on a very wet and cold December day !!
Dun Loaghaire Rathdown County Council along with Dublin City Council have joined a Fingal County Council led project that aims to tag Brent geese in order to understand their movements within the Dublin area, including their use of non-designated sites. Students and staff from the University of Exeter have been working hard on this project since 2018 on our behalf and have put in a massive effort to get the geese tagged sot that we can gain insight into where the geese feed and where they roost.
We would like to thank the public for the helping us to identify inland areas of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown where Brent geese have been seen or noted.
You can send the information on sightings of brent geese in inland areas of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown to the Biodiversity Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
