Our comprehensive service extends to many other native Flora and Fauna surveys and mitigation work, working with all species as protected under Schedule 1 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). This includes Otters, Water voles, woodlands and many specific wild plant species.
During all ecological and Phase 1 surveys, these plants are searched for. The optimal time of year to conduct this is from April to September, when the plants are in flower. Where potential for particular rare plants are noted we also undertake detailed vegetation and quadrat surveys to assess the abundance and distribution of rare plants.
Should development be likely to impact upon rare plants we are able to advise on a range of mitigation options including seed collection, soil collection, turf translocation and plug planting.
