Field Assistant required on Behavioural Ecology of house sparrows.

FIELD ASSISTANT required from early May through to early/mid July 2007 to aid in a PhD study on behavioural ecology of house sparrows on Lundy Island, Bristol Channel, UK. This is a wonderful opportunity for those interested in studying wild animal populations. Previous fieldwork and/or bird handling experience is beneficial but not essential. More importantly, I am looking for someone with a positive attitude, interpersonal skills (required to get along with other people on the island) and who does not mind getting up early! Daily routines involve checking nest boxes, nest box watch and setting up video cameras. Both physically and mentally challenging so be prepared! Travel within the UK, accommodation on the island and food will be covered (if from oversea, some of the airfare may be covered).

Lundy Island is a beautiful place, especially in the summer, and has a great
array of wildlife, for more information on Lundy itself check these websites:,
