Today I got an email with a few photos from Franeker.

Construction company Van Marrum BV has installed for project developer, Elizen Vastgoed BV from Twello, the sandstone falcon were placed there.
The falcon was placed on top of the upper sandstone tympanum of the building with the use of a crane, just where the old falcon used to stand. It stands firmly attached with a thick rod and embedded in a layer of mortar. This way it should be able to last for some time!
