Pleased to announce that my independent ecological consultancy Ardea Ecology (www.ardeaecology.co.uk) has achieved Registered Practice status with the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM). This achievement demonstrates my commitment to providing a quality pragmatic ecological service to my clients, maintaining professional high standards and my continued enthusiasm to promote biodiversity and conservation of wildlife and habitats in line with CIEEM’s goals.
We are now well into the active season for bat surveys so if you have a potential development site or a site that is likley to contain bats, or if you are planning on submitting planning application for a site later in the year, please take into account that the local council or planning authority will not condition surveys for bats or surveys for other protected species and may therefore reject your application or refuse it for lack of surveys, so please contact us to get some advice or survey booked in. We hold survey and mitigation licences for bats and have vast experience of bat ecology, licensing and the planning system.

A quick trip to the local woodland to get some snaps of the bluebells out in flower, the native bluebells have a wonderful scent and flowers on one side of the stem which causes them to droop with the weight, this is a good clue to ID them from the larger spanish bluebell or hybrids. All photos taken on a D800 with Nikon AFS 24-70 2.8.
