Since then, our company has expanded and our expert ecologists have the skills and experience to carry out a complete range of ecological projects. The expertise of our ecologists is built on an ongoing involvement in ecological research and voluntary survey work.

Much of our work involves a wide range of development projects and over time, our company has built up a reputation for reliable and cost-effective work. Provision of consistent and high quality advice is important to us and our clients return time after time to reuse our ecological services.

Our ecologists are still recording a good number of reptiles enjoying the beautiful autumnal sunshine. Here are some slow worms found on a recent survey and one sleepy toad. (note the top photo with a lovely example of a male and female).

The hedgehogs are doing well, both Jodie and Harriet are nearly ready for soft release back into the wild. Sonic is also gaining weight in preparation for release.

We did a wee bit of reptile training yesterday so some of the staff could get a bit more handling experience with a licenced ecologist. We were lucky enough to see all six native species, including these little beauties. A male grass snake and juvenile slow worm. We also stumbled upon an impressive wasp spider!

Ahh its an ecologists life...a few snippets of a day in the life of a surveyor. British wildlife at its best, clockwise from the top - a comma caterpillar feeding on one of its favoured food plants, common nettle. The adult butterfly with its scalloped wings and when closed amazingly camouflaged as a dead leaf! Then the elephant hawk-moth caterpillar which can be seen around now. Named because of the larvae resembling an elephants trunk. Nature is immense. 🌿
