     Area visited while in Lithuania


Research in Kaunas

 The area located in 2014 was overgrown with plants, therefore the area
 could not be used for nesting in 2015. We visited another research area
 located in 2014 in the town of Jurbarkas. Since the area in Kaunas was
 unusable we decided to relocate to Jurbarkas.



Research Area 1


 We turned the breeding area located in Jurbarkas in 2014 into research
 area 1 and successfully captured both little terns and common terns. We
 attached geolocator units and collected blood samples from captured little
 terns.

Research Area 2

 We surveyed research area 2 also found in Jurbarkas. We were able to
 confirm nests and again successful in capturing little terns.






 In research area 2, we attempted to capture a breeding pair which later we
 discovered one was wearing a geolocator attached in 2014. Ultimately we
  were unable to retrieve last year's geolocator but managed to attack
 another device as well as collect a blood sample.

Research Area 3


 We surveyed the neighbouring colony which we discovered in 2014
 (Research Area 3). Little terns were nesting here as well as we began
 capturing, attaching geolocators, and collecting blood samples.

Research Area 4

 The use of boat allowed us to discoer a new colony on the Nemunas River.
 This area was surveyed in 2014 and was nested by a breeding pair of little
 terns. We managed to attach geolocators in the area aoso, as well as
 collect blood samples.
