Arbtech have the in house expertise to allow us to carry out surveys for breeding birds quickly and efficiently. We can provide a number of surveys including a breeding bird survey and a breeding bird check.
Why You Have Been Asked for a Breeding Bird Survey
In the UK, all nesting birds are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). This means that it is an offence to intentionally kill, injure or take any wild bird or take, damage or destroy its nest whilst in use or being built, or take or destroy its eggs. Breaking the law can lead to fines of up to £5000 per offence and prison sentences of up to 6 months.
Breeding bird surveys can only be done at certain times of the year so if you have been asked for one, we would advise you to arrange for the survey to be done as soon as possible to avoid any delays to your project. A breeding bird survey can only be done during the months of April, May and June and breeding bird checks can be done between the months of March and August inclusive.
