Nick Wilkinson from the monitoring part of the RSPB/NE Twite Recovery Project is seeking a research assistant to start immediately.
The fieldwork will mainly involve assisting with surveys of breeding twite at multiple sites and nest finding and monitoring, but may also include plant surveys on farmland and some data inputting. Suitable candidates should have good bird id and survey skills, be able to follow instructions methodically, map and record observations accurately, and be able to cope with long hours of walking over rough terrain. Any nest finding experience would be a bonus. This is a four-month contract (full time), starting early May to late August.
For further details, please contact Nick either by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07920 593908.
