LOFAR field work has started

Submitter: Peter Bennema
Description: After months of bird watching during the breeding season it's now our turn to do our job. All(?) the nests are empty, the young birds are singing their songs over the fields. So now we can build our own "super nest" for the antenna's in the Central Core.

The picture shows the "super terp" under construction. Huge strange-looking yellow sand-diggers are moving soil from one part of the area to the locations for the antenna-fields, reshaping the farm land into a vast nature reserve in which the LOFAR fields will be placed.
