Where developments may affect the habitat which could potentially support breeding birds, a survey will be requested by your local planning authority. Our experienced ecology team understand your requirements at every stage of the planning process and are able to supply you with the necessary surveys and reports in order to find the perfect balance between achieving planning permission and protecting wildlife.

Breeding Birds

It is important to understand the value of the site to bird populations be they wintering or breeding birds and if development will significantly affect the population or associated habitat.

Surveys can be carried out between March and July for breeding birds, November and February for Winter birds and August to October for Migrating birds.

Surveys usually involve three visits to the site (an initial scoping visit followed by two survey visits) following the British Trust for Ornithology Territory Mapping Method to determine what birds are present at the Site, in what numbers and their breeding status at the site.

Please refer to our Ecology Survey Calendar for further information on Breeding Birds and other protected species surveys.
