Do I Need a Nesting Bird Survey?

  • 11 May 2023

Nesting and breeding bird survey season is now underway

Nesting birds can halt site clearance works and demolition should they be found on site, causing unexpected delays to programme and increased costs.

Whilst it is advisable to carry out vegetation clearance outside of the nesting season, works can be carried out during this period, so long as it is preceded by a nesting bird check by a qualified, experienced ecologist to confirm no active nests are present.

Some species of birds nest in buildings therefore demolition during nesting season may also require a nesting bird check.

For further advice and or to book a survey, contact our Ecology team on 0161 312 3131.
