Identifying your environmental assets is the first step to being able to manage and enhance them. Farmland birds and breeding waders are often priorities for conservation funding and a professional bird survey can identify what species are present, as well as their distribution and abundance.
All bat species, along with their breeding and resting places (i.e. roosts) are protected by law. There are many activities that can have an impact on bats.
Wetlands areas, whether this is a small farm pond, fen, reedbed, saltmarsh or an extensive network of farm drains, scrapes and floodplain grassland, are all essential elements of our biodiversity within the landscape, often supporting rare and specialised plants, invertebrates and mammals not found elsewhere.
