Puffins

Puffins, artic terns, and many other seabirds are protected under UK law. Some of the more rarer species are given enhanced protection from disturbance during the breeding season. Almost all development sites have the potential to support nesting birds and this can impose seasonal constraints on site clearance.

At Acer Ecology, our experienced ecologists can advise you on survey methodology, legal protection, mitigation options and the timing of development work for your project, in order for your planning process and development to run as smoothly as possible.

We have carried out a number of bird surveys on the Northumberland coastline such as  Seahouses and Bambugh. Our ecologists also have the capacity to carry out ecological surveys in the counties of Durham and Cumbria and countries such as Wales and Scotland.

Identifying ecological constraints early in the planning process has proven to be both cost-effective and time-saving in the long run.
