Phase 1 Ecological Survey and Walk-over Survey
Normally the first step in assessing the ecology of a site, the aim of this type of survey is to map and describe botanically the component habitats and to identify if there is need for further Phase 2 investigations, as listed below.
Phase 2 Ecological Survey
Below is a list of the most common specialist surveys undertaken by us. The methodologies are according to the most recent published guidelines for each group or species.
Reptiles (slow-worm, grass snake, adder, common lizard, sand lizard and smooth snake)
Amphibians (great crested newt, natterjack toad)
Ecological Assesment and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
Information gathered through survey and research is written up in a user-friendly report. With our team members having Local Authority backgrounds, we are in a unique position for knowing what works as a report format and what should be avoided. Importantly, when writing our reports, we consider who the reader is likely to be so that information is presented in a relevant meaningful way.
