Arctic foxes have eaten many eggs of the arctic terns, but some have escaped predation.
Two pairs are breeding on the roof of the largest building in Ny-Ålesund: Renseverket.
Janwillem has been catching the adults and Maarten runs up the stairs when Janwillem reports a successful catch via the radio.
