Ground Nesting Birds

Ground Nesting Birds

If you have any kind of project planned which involves ground disturbance, at certain times of the year you need to take into account the possibility of ground nesting birds.

At the very least you should conduct a survey to assess the likelihood of ground nesting species of birds setting up home on the land in question.

Following the initial survey, a decision needs to be made as to the appropriate level of deterrence required to keep your project on track. The wrong decision here can cost many thousands of pounds in either expensive over protection or extremely lengthy delays due to under protection.

This is where we can help; we can suggest and provide the right level of cover using falconry, dogs, audio and visual deterrents etc. Depending on the site conditions and time of year the requirement could fall anywhere from no action to full time intensive deterrence. Of course, it usually turns out to be somewhere in between. If required, and to help with costs, it is also entirely possible that with a little guidance some of the work could be done by yourselves with oversight and reporting by outside professionals. All of this is why the initial survey is so important. Call now for free advice and to arrange a free survey.

The Feral Pigeon (Columba Livia) is descended from the Rock Dove and is a natural cliff dweller, as such it is perfectly at home in our towns and cities because it sees each building as just another cliff to be colonised.

These migratory birds are only a problem for a limited time each year but if you have a few of them nest above your door you’ll certainly appreciate the problems they cause.

When hunting for food or protecting their nests gulls can be incredibly aggressive. If you’re unlucky enough to have them nest on your property you’ll know what a threat they can be when they’re looking after their eggs or young. Even if it’s just a regular loafing spot the mess beneath can be enormous.

First introduced to Britain in the 17th century, the lack of natural predators and abundance of food has seen this specie’s population grow to the point where it is often referred to as a pest.
