We have designed and implemented ecological assessments for a variety of green energy projects throughout the UK, ranging from small-scale single turbine schemes to larger ground mounted solar PV farms.
Wind power projects often require more complex, ‘high risk’ species groups (e.g. bats and birds) in accordance with current best-practice guidance.
We work strategically with private and public sector clients to bridge the gap between progress and conservation to help our clients make well-informed decisions.
Sylvan Ecology has extensive experience of providing cost-effective ecological solutions, including the following wind power specific assessments:
- Ecological and Ornithological Impact Assessment
- Bird Surveys, inc. Vantage Point Counts, Breeding Bird Surveys and Wintering Bird Surveys
- Collision Risk Analysis for Birds
- Bat Surveys, inc. Initial Daytime Assessments, Activity Surveys and Automated / Static Surveys
