Catching on the roof

11 July 2015, 12:21

Today we are catching a tern with geolocator on the roof of Renseverket. Renseverket is the tallest building in town with a concrete roof, covered with decaying wood panelling. It is a dark industrial monument, with a somewhat creapy atmosphere. But it is also one of the two safe places in town for arctic terns to nest. We have tried to catch this logger bird yeaterday, but it escaped from the trap when the netting got stuck behind a nail. Today with another model trap we manage relatively fast. On the way in I made a picture of Janwillem, which catches the atmosphere of the building too.
