Calving in Norrbotten 2016
The calving season has started in Norrbotten.
Until today, we have seen signs of calving in all four areas
Haparanda / Kalix: first out was HK F1293 that calved probably 11th of May. We see signs of four more calving. In addition, there may be one more calving, but here the change in movement patterns is less distinct and thus has some uncertainty.
Junosuando: First was JU F1893 which calved May 20th. Two days later calved JU F4985. In addition, we see signs of 2-4 more calving of which one already at May 13th. But for all these last named calving, the moose cows showed less clear changes in their movement patterns, resulting in some uncertainty whether they actual calved or not.
Gällivare: one calving so far - F1920 GA calved May 22nd.
Svappavaara: first calving by EN F4403 May 14th and a second one by EN F4423 at May 18th or 19th
Nikkaluokta: No calving has been observed so far
