The ABO is currently undertaking two years of operation to gain formal Bird Observatory Council accreditation. We need to maintain a program of ringing and recording and would be delighted to have individual or groups of ringers join us to help man the observatory.
Currently, while the obs building is undergoing refurbishment, we are seeking experienced ringers (or visits from ringing groups) for periods of 1 week+ to assist with this year’s ringing program. Accommodation can be provided for a minimal cost. The renovations will be completed in 2016 and we are taking expressions of interest for accommodation bookings in 2017. The obs operates from March to November but accommodation bookings outside these dates can also be considered as well.
Further information about ringing in 2016 and accommodation in 2017 can be obtained from John Horton, the ABO warden email@example.com.
Please see also the BTO website job opportunities page for details of positions at the Observatory.
