Standard survey methods vary a little according to the habitat(s) involved, and the objective of the work. One of the most common surveys we offer is the simplified Common Bird Census. Suitable for most lowland countryside, this consists of a professional surveyor visiting at least three times between late March and early July, early in the morning. All birds seen and heard are mapped, and this collated information is used to determine the number and distribution of each species’ breeding territories.
Get in touch with Kirsty on 07379 285818 or email to discuss your survey requirements and your site, ideally before April. Kirsty has over 25 years’ experience in bird recording, most of which involved surveying in a professional capacity within the context of practical, on-farm conservation work.
“I have really enjoyed carrying out the Oakbank bird survey with Kirsty. Her expert eyes and ears are able to identify every bird we saw and heard on the farm. She plotted all her findings, so we have a record of which species are found where and it has been very useful to look at historical records to see how things have changed over time.”
