Work at the bird observatory this year

Do you want to work for us this year?
We are looking for personel for this year's field season.
What we need is 2-3 persons who will work with our various projects during the period from the mid April until the end of June. A couple of the projects you will work with is the wetland surveys and our ortolan bunting project.
In addition to this, we need ringers and ringing assistants from midsummer until the end of September.

Send an email to staff_manager@kvismaren.org with your application.
