student research on the breeding biology of arctic terns
16 June 2014 10:00
Malenthe Teunis is a student biology at the University of Groningen. She is doing her masters on breeding biology of arctic terns. Today she has found the first two nests, still located too close to the road as only there, there are the only snow free spots.
The nest on the video has two parents who received a geolocator last year. When we retrieve the geolocator, we will be able to calculate daily positions over a full year. These birds have been to Antarctica during our winter and are world record holders on annual migration distance (upto 90.000 km).
