The Slamannan Bean Geese are still on a migratory stopover in Jylland, northern Denmark. The weather has been pretty cold there for the last two weeks with temperatures down to minus 10 degrees C and a biting easterly wind. The geese will make their way north in the next week or so - but where to next? The four satellite tagged birds will hopefully shed light on the timing of their movement and their destination.
