Wren Ecology can offer the following species surveys to its clients:

  • Great crested newt Habitat Suitability Index (HSI), eDNA water sampling and species survey;
  • Badger survey and sett closure;
  • Reptile (adder, grass snake, common lizard and slow-worm) surveying and translocation; and
  • Otter and water vole survey.

All surveys are carried out within their optimal months and comply with professionally acknowledged survey methodologies.

A report will be produced after completion of the survey, which can be used to support the proposal’s planning application. Where necessary, the report will also include any requirement for mitigation measures to avoid direct/indirect impacts to species.
