   Biography

I am a family doctor by profession, but since adolescence I have had an interest in birds of prey and owls. Situated in the north of Norway, I conduct surveys on most diurnal and nocturnal raptors breeding in the region. The Raptor Group has focused particularly on the Gyrfalcon, with mapping surveys in Alta and Kautokeino municipalities from about 1990, and more complete surveys from 2000. The last two decades we have also built a number of artificial nests for Gyrfalcons.
