Cas was named like one of the Dutch Goose catchers

Cas LPW2

Cas was caught on 19-2-2008 near Haarsteeg (Noord-Brabant, NL) and fittet with another satellite transmitter. He also was marked with coloured legrings (left lime P, right white 2). At 13 o'clock he was released in a flock of 13 whiterfronts which all were marked with black neckbands. So the mate of Cas might wear a neckband (AAR, AGY, MYJ, MYN or MYS).

Cas was read in this flock

Cas was roosting near Moscow

From 20 till 28 april we (Gerard Muskens, Dirk Tanger and Gerrit Walstra) were with Peter Glasov in Russia. Because of the frost and snow we could not go to the first days to Kostroma region, so we decided to look for whitefronts around moscou. Because CAS was transmittered in the south of moscou we went to that region. And on 22 april in the afternoon we found a flock of whitefronts (600) and bean goose (200). Peter saw leg rings and a transmitter, but he could not see the marks on the legrings, because the geese were to far away, but it must be CAS. I could take a picture of a part of the group were CAS belongs to.
