Work at the Bird Observatory

Kvismare Bird Observatory needs staff from April to September. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an experienced ornithologist you may participate in the work at the bird observatory.

The entire field season we need wardens who are able to be in charge of the daily running of the bird observatory. Before midsummer we also need people making censuses, e. g. on the breeding biology of Marsh harriers. After midsummer and to the end of September ringers are needed.

Assistants are needed throughout the season. To work as an assistant you do not need any earlier experience of bird observatory work. Interest in birds and nature conservation work is sufficient. Minimum age is 15 years.

Subsistence allowance is paid to persons working at least one week. The payment is at present 500 SEK / week for assistants, 1000 SEK / week for ringers, census personnel and wardens.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with Staff Manager Magnus Friberg if you want to work at Kvismare Bird Observatory!
