The onset of autumn can mean only one thing – the end of the 2019 ecology survey season.

LUC’s ecologists have spent the past few months in the field, so it’s with a satisfied sigh of relief that we’ve started returning to our offices for some serious report writing.

What a season it’s been…

From National Vegetation Classification surveys for proposed wind farms in the remote Scottish Highlands, to aerial bat surveys for conservation projects in Sussex, we’ve deployed new and exciting survey methods to bring cost-effective and scientifically robust solutions to our clients.

Over the winter, we’ll be using the data we’ve collected over the past few months. For example, we’re really excited to be helping our clients with their Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) requirements. We’ll be publishing a series of white papers and arranging some events on this subject in the coming weeks – watch this space!
