The Wildfowl and Wetland Trust is concerned about Whitefronted Geese and wants to analyse their behaviour. It has fitted some with their own fitbit or micro:bit for birds containing an accelerometer and fine tuned it to the birds’ movements.
While it can count the number of steps a goose takes, it does much more. It can tell from the bird’s movements how it is grazing – whether it is grazing the surface or digging down deeper. It shows us when the goose is alert with its head up and can tell when she is at the nest and how long her incubation lasts.
From Nicola – How would you code this?
