Ground Nesting Birds
If you have any kind of project planned which involves ground disturbance, at certain times of the year you need to take into account the possibility of ground nesting birds.
At the very least you should conduct a survey to assess the likelihood of ground nesting species of birds setting up home on the land in question.
Following the initial survey, a decision needs to be made as to the appropriate level of deterrence required to keep your project on track. The wrong decision here can cost many thousands of pounds in either expensive over protection or extremely lengthy delays due to under protection.
This is where we can help; we can suggest and provide the right level of cover using falconry, dogs, audio and visual deterrents etc. Depending on the site conditions and time of year the requirement could fall anywhere from no action to full time intensive deterrence. Of course, it usually turns out to be somewhere in between. If required, and to help with costs, it is also entirely possible that with a little guidance some of the work could be done by yourselves with oversight and reporting by outside professionals. All of this is why the initial survey is so important.

Having had a previous quote that seemed extremely excessive to protect a development site from nesting birds, I contacted Ray who provided pragmatic and reassuring expert advice on measures we could take ourselves and supplied various deterrents. Along with Falcon Environmental's weekly surveys and written reports this worked perfectly for us ensuring that our responsibilities and duties of care were more than adequately covered, at the same time saving our client a substantial sum..
