Reptile and amphibian fencing projects

With the trapping season now well underway, over the past couple of months we have been busy with numerous fencing projects – amongst others:

We have installed temporary newt and reptile fencing for a Dorset based ecology consultancy, on sites in both Dorset and Bristol where we also constructed 3 hibernacula.

In order to prepare land for the creation of an orchard, plus allotments for local residents, we have worked with a housing agency on a site in Milton Keynes, where we installed temporary newt fencing with pitfall traps, and excavated for and buried a 400m length of water pipe. The water pipe has been installed for the purpose of watering the land once it has been converted to allotments.

We have worked on a site in Ifold, Sussex, clearing vegetation and then installing temporary reptile fencing in preparation of the commencement of a housing development project.

We have installed semi-permanent reptile fencing and log pile hibernacula on a residential site in Crawley, West Sussex. Semi-permanent reptile fencing has been used as it will last longer than temporary reptile fencing, as it will need to stay on site for a couple of years whilst development works are underway.

On the site of a disused hospital in Essex, after completing a destructive search and vegetation clearance, we installed temporary reptile fencing to help clear the site of reptiles prior to archaeological works commencing.
