Prior to the start of March we had a number of clients contact us for emergency nesting bird checks and our ecological clerk of works services due to issues raised by local residents on their sites, concerned for the welfare of the local birds.
Fortunately for these forward thinking clients we were able to intervene on their behalf and find a way forward, whilst reassuring all parties that the works were being conducted under our expert supervision and following all reasonable steps to avoid any foreseeable disturbance or harm to local birds as well as reptile, mammal and amphibian species.
It may seem like an unnecessary expense before a problem occurs but when the feathers look like they are about to hit the fan these clients are able to feel reassured that we will steer the situation to a mutually agreeable point without the situation escalating.
We have also received a flurry of commissions for newt and reptile mitigation works as we are on the cusp of being able to proceed with these projects. Contact us if you want to get ahead of the game and we will do our best to accommodate your requirements.
