Butterflies are mainly day flying insects, most species are diurnal. They may have one or more broods a year. Our surveys record species of Butterflies and day flying Moths present, what habitat they are in and what plant species they are using for feeding on or egg laying.
Our native species include three lizards (Slow Worm, Sand lizard and Common lizard) and three Snake species (Smooth Snake, Grass Snake and Adder). They are all protected in the UK under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. By using mats and sheeting, we record which species are present, their numbers and sex. Prey items and skins are also used to build a picture of species present.
Badgers belong to the Weasel biological family (Mustolidae). They are short legged heavy set omnivores. They are protected under the Protection of Badgers Act 1992 which makes it a serious offence to kill, injure, take or to damage or interfere with a sett. We locate and assess if setts are occupied, and if so we determine by how many including sex and approximate age. Camouflaging and top of the range optical equipment will be used to minimise potential disturbance to the badgers. Activities carried out within 30m of a sett may require a licence.
Note: Surveys conducted include a full report.
