Reptiles are found in a variety of habitats and all species are protected by law in the UK. Sand lizards and smooth snakes are also protected under EU law. If a development is thought to affect reptiles, we can carry out presence/likely absence surveys, and also provide species protection plans and mitigation measures for reptiles. Surveys are best carried out in April, May and September for reptiles.
Provided surveys in new planting areas, harvest sites, farm buildings & advised on building works. Very helpful!Protected Species Surveys - Eskdalemuir Forestry
