We undertake all types of bird survey during both the breeding and non-breeding seasons.

Techniques used include common bird census (CBC), vantage point surveys (VPs), point counts, transects, Wetland Bird Surveys (WeBS) and Brown and Shepherd methodology for upland birds.

We also undertake specialist bird surveys for individual species, such as nightjar, black redstart, peregrine falcon and other protected and priority species of bird. All ecosystems are covered: terrestrial, freshwater, intertidal and marine.

Following the survey work, we can undertake the required scientific and statistical analysis, for example, territorial analysis, population assessments and collision risk assessments for wind farms.

Survey results can also be assessed under the various regulatory regimes, such as the Wildlife and Countryside Act, the EIA Directive, the Habitats Directive and local and national planning policy.
