Bird ringer (m/f) needed!

For the upcoming spring season at Muraviovka Park in Far East Russia, the Amur Bird Project is searching for a bird ringer. You should be able to stay at least for 8 weeks between 11th of April and 5th of June 2016 to run the daily mist-netting program at our station. I´m afraid you have to pay your travel and visa costs, but housing and groceries are included, as well as more than 3000 birds of nearly 100 species in your hands. You should be able to speak either English or German, and of course, Russian language skills are very welcome. If you have experience with mist-nets, handling and measuring of palearctic birds and if you hold a ringing permit, please send your application until 6th of November 2015 to amurbirding {ät}
