First day of field work in northern Sweden

I just had my first day in the field for my new job as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Although my work will mainly consist of analysing consisting datasets, I am also collecting new data. Most of the work is done my research assistants, but sometimes I get the opportunity to join them in the field!

A grid of sticks allows us to estimate effective detection distance and angle as well as animal speed.
