Field Research Volunteers: Kestrel Observers

We are looking for volunteers to help in making observations of colour-ringed Kestrels across the study area (roughly a 40km radius from the Trust). Although greater detail will be provided to all volunteers, as a basic summary, the work involves each volunteer being provided with a map and asked to visit a specific location on two occasions during the winter to look for Kestrels. Volunteers would then be required to spend a minimum of 20 minutes at each location looking for Kestrels and recording any they see, any that have colour-rings and, if possible, reading the colour-ring code.

Start date: As soon as possible, apply now!

Terms: Ongoing, Unpaid Voluntary, at least two sessions between now and the end of March

Location: within 40km of the Hawk Conservancy Trust

The ideal volunteer would have:
