Breeding birds

Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 it is illegal to kill, disturb or relocate a breeding bird whilst it is nesting. Many bird species have undergone drastic declines both in population size and distribution within recent memory with many finding themselves on the RSPB’s list of Birds of Conservation Concern.

Some examples include the yellowhammer (Emberiza citrinella), corn bunting (Emberiza calandra) and lapwing (Vanellus vanellus) which were all once common on arable land. Experienced bird surveyors at Lindsay Carrington Ecological Services Ltd are able to undertake all sizes of bird survey – from small scale nesting bird watching briefs to long-term conservation monitoring programs.
