Birds are an essential part of our natural environment and a welcome sight in our gardens. Many species have adapted to living in close proximity with humans. Swallows and sparrows are just some of the species which build their nests in houses or on other manmade structures.

The habitats of many bird species, as well as the available feeding places for them, have been declining quite dramatically in the UK. When breeding all wild birds are protected under Schedule 1 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). Some species of birds, such as Red Kites and Barn Owls are also protected species under Schedule 9 of the same Act.

We have considerable experience in undertaking breeding bird and overwintering bird surveys, with one of our particular specialities being Barn Owl surveys – so not just mammals!

How we can help:

  • Breeding bird surveys
  • Overwintering bird surveys
