Protected Species Surveys
These are the main protected species surveys that we offer, but we would be very happy to discuss your requirements outside these categories.
We have surveyors based throughout Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire to provide cost-effective protected species surveys.

Protected Species surveys are usually required if the initial survey (e.g. PEA or PRA) has identified suitable habitats on site and potential detrimental impacts on protected species from the proposed works.
We conduct all our Protected Species Surveys in accordance with the current best practice. We document survey results using bespoke and pre-designed templates to ensure a complete audit trail and excellent record-keeping.
Our surveyors hold the relevant Natural England species survey licences and have extensive experience to conduct a wide range of Protected Species Survey including:
Our bat surveys are carried out with state of the art Anabat and Song Meter 2 bat detectors which record bat echolocation sounds. We use sound analysis software for identification to species level and can provide multiple detectors to monitor a range of locations, including long-term monitoring. Our infra-red camera equipment accurately records the number of bats that use a roost and pinpoints the exact point where bats access their roost. This is invaluable information for a site where a European Protected Species mitigation licence is required.
