These are the main ecology watching brief and ecological clerk of works services that we offer, but we would be very happy to discuss your requirements outside these catagories.

If you need further explanation or have any questions, please Contact us.

Ecological Clerk of Works

We are experienced in providing Ecological Clerk of Works duties to major civil engineering projects, and provide the required monitoring and reporting function to ensure wildlife legislation requirements are met.

Watching Brief

If your development needs to proceed and there are risks to animals that may be present, we can provide a licensed ecologist to be on site to oversee operations and deal with protected species and other animals under the relevant Natural England license. Typically this may involve clearing trees or shrubs that may form bird nesting habitat during the nesting season, clearance of areas which may contain reptiles, felling of trees that may contain bat roosts, or building works such as roof tile removal where bats may be present.

We recommend that a decision to commission work under a watching brief is made after a survey and assessment of the risk of protected species being present.
