We recently arrived at our cabin up west around midnight. We unloaded the car and were in the middle of preparing a hot meal that would keep us energised throughout the night. The plan was to overlook the common eider settlement and protect it from predators. The settlement is looking better this year with more birds than the last couple of years. I noticed that the birds behaviour chanced all of a sudden, they became tense and something had clearly disturbed their peace. Then I saw him, a torn fox in the middle of the settlement, scaring the birds of their nests. I grabbed the rifle and got into position but the fox was sneaky and disappeared out of my sight. I repositioned and spotted him again, but no shot was available. So I eventually got back to the original position and koby11 measured him at comfortable 164 m. I pulled the trigger and he dropped on the spot, crushing the eider egg between his jaws. A symbolic death in a way for our work in protecting the eider settlement. This egg was indeed his last bite.
