While many animals become less active in the winter there is still plenty of survey work that can be done during the winter months. Therefore now is the time to plan your winter ecology survey works and avoid potential delays later.
Planning ahead and undertaking the certain surveys that can be done at this time of year can help avoid unnecessary delays, with planning applications for instance, and allow any other survey work required within the spring/summer season to be scheduled in early.
For an overview of the seasonal timings for ecology work for all species please see our Ecology Survey Calendar
As the festive season is nearly upon us I wish all a healthy, happy and restful break it will be well deserved.
