Breeding Birds

It is important to understand the value of the site to bird populations be they wintering or breeding birds and if development will significantly affect the population or associated habitat

  • Surveys can be carried out between March and July for breeding birds, November and February for Winter birds and August to October for Migrating birds.

  • Surveys usually involve three visits to the site (an initial scoping visit followed by two survey visits) following the British Trust for Ornithology Territory Mapping Method to determine what birds are present at the Site, in what numbers and their breeding status at the site.

Please refer to our Ecology Survey Calendar for further information on Breeding Birds and other protected species surveys.
