Bird surveys and mitigation

Ecology Services UK Ltd specialises in bird surveys and mitigation

All wild birds (including both eggs and nests) are protected by law. Some species have additional protection when nesting. Many bird habitats are also protected and Local Planning Authorities have a duty to conserve their biodiversity.

If you are likely to have an impact on wild birds, the Local Planning Authority will expect you to explain how you will do something about this. You will need to have a survey and, if birds are to be affected, you will also need to provide mitigation (measures to offset the predicted impacts on birds).

We have many years of experience in the following areas of work:

  • Nesting bird surveys and breeding bird surveys
  • Wintering bird surveys
  • Designing and overseeing mitigation for birds

Not sure what type of survey you need? We can help. Just call us on:
