Volunteer opportunities on Skokholm

Following on from our blog of 1st May which helped to get volunteers for digitising the bird logs on Skokholm early in the season, we are now after volunteers for weeks in the second half of  September –  the weeks beginning Monday 15th,  Friday 19th or Monday 22nd.  The work needs to be done in pairs and for this period we have one volunteer available but need at least one other person to work with him.  It helps if you have some knowledge of birds and familiarity with Excel, but other than that the work is not difficult – it just requires attention to detail.  On the plus side, accommodation on Skokholm is free (courtesy of the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales) and we can offer some recompense of travel expenses (courtesy of Environment Wales), so the main outlay for any volunteer would be the food for self-catering whilst on the island.

If you are interested please could you contact Phil Blatcher (blatchers@hotmail.com  01992 441024 ) who is co-ordinating the work on the bird logs.
