Amphibian & Reptile Surveys
Great crested newt surveys are often required if your planning application involves the removal or disturbance of ponds. Such surveys have to be conducted by a suitably licenced ecologist.
Our consultants hold licences for all UK protected reptiles and amphibians including great crested newt and can conduct all survey and mitigation works you may require. We are fully experienced in both small and large scale mitigation projects and regularly conduct habitat improvement works for a range of amphibian and reptile species. Estrada Ecology ecologists are suitably qualified to conduct eDNA surveys for great crested newt.
The UK has a number of legally protected amphibian and reptile species all occupying a range of different habitats. The survey period for the majority of amphibians and reptiles is limited so seeking professional advice at your earliest opportunity is strongly recommended.
