AW has extensive experience of surveying bats in buildings, emergent surveys and specialist advice on bat calls and management of the data for inclusion in bat survey reports. He has made a conscious decision to not offer an application for protected species licence for any protected species. He can also analyse the results of and write the report.
AW undertakes many winter bird surveys and breeding bird surveys and analyse the results and write the report, as part of the planning process for solar panel farm construction of agricultural land.
He also undertakes phase one habitat surveys, reptile and amphibian surveys for land that will be subject to development.
It is unlikely that AW will work on major engineering projects as he has done in the past- he no longer wants to possess a CSCS card to allow access on major engineering projects.
Once a EPSL licence (e.g. for bats) has been obtained AW has extensive experience of working with roofers, builders and scaffolders to offer a tool box talk to staff who may not have dealt with protected species before. He also has experience of working with the above staff in making a protected species safe if found during licensed works on a building or site. AW has recently worked on sites as an ECoW for consultancies Geckoella Ltd, Quantock Ecology and Clarkson & Woods
