Why Choose Arbtech?

Arbtech are the best asset you can possibly have when you need ecology or tree surveys to help you obtain planning permission.

In recent years, the number of barn owls in the UK has declined rapidly due to the loss of nesting sites as a result of human activity.

Due to the decline in their numbers, barn owls are now protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981). This means that it is illegal to kill, capture or injure barn owls. Barn owl nests are also protected from disturbance under Schedule 1 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act.

If you are a developer carrying out works that could impact barn owls, you need to take this into account and instruct a qualified ecologist to survey your development to ensure that barn owls will not be affected by the work you are carrying out.

What Happens on a Barn Owl Survey?

A barn owl survey involves a desk study to check for barn owls and nesting sites close to the development and a follow-up survey that involves an ecologist visiting the development to check for signs of barn owl activity.

The ecologist will look for things like feathers, droppings, eggs, and nest debris, as well as live or dead barn owls. Once this is done, the ecologist will be able to assess what kind of barn owl activity is present on the site and if any roosting sites are being affected then alternative roosts will need to be provided.
