Ringer and volunteers wanted for autumn 2018 at Blåvand Bird Observatory.

Blåvand Bird Observatory is looking for a ringer and volunteers for the autumn monitoring program from 20th of July until 15th of November 2018. At this time there will be a great species diversity and many interesting species are caught each year during autumn. You will be working in a very comfortable place with optimal ringing facilities at one of the hotspots in Scandinavia. In the autumn we catch about 4000 birds.

We have now build a Helgolandtrap as the first time in Denmark. 

In the autumn ringing we normally catch Yellow-Browed Warbler and Pallas’ Leaf Warbler. But you have the possibility to catch more rare birds as: Dusky Warbler, Raddes Warbler, Barred Warbler, Red-Flanked Bluetail and many other rarities.

At a stay of more than one month we can offer:

Free accommodation in a charming and well equipped house in the westernmost point of Denmark.

Good ringing facilities at one of the very best migration points in Scandinavia.

One ringer will be paid 200 dkr. per day.
