Arctic terns

29 June 2009 20:00

shit "Shit!" sounds over the tundra. It is not shit what has hit Thomas, but an arctic tern, who is defending its nest.
We keep track of nest survival (which is pretty low with a fox den in town) and Thomas was taking the GPS-position of this nest and placing a small stick with a flag next to the nest. The terns made a lot of noise and managed to get to his head. Elise Biersma had just arrived and photographed the action.
shriek ready? hit
