Successful first field season

The first field season in the DiverLog project was completed very successfully. Within the last 3 months, the catching team spent 6 nights in the German bay west of Sylt to catch red-throated divers from a dinghy equipped with a spotlight and a hand net.

In total, 22 red-throated divers were caught and equipped with 15 implantable and 7 external loggers. This is the largest number of divers caught in our projects in one season so far!
