Optimal Timings

Wild animals are not active every month of the year and have optimal timing’s for surveys. Therefore, we can be constrained to when some species are most active to be able to undertake a presence/absence survey. Below is a month by month guide of the optimal and sub-optimal months for surveys to be undertaken.


All of our services comply with the rules and regulations set out in the associated good practice guidelines, something that all Ecologists and Planners have to abide by. Do not be afraid to Contact Us for a quote, or with any queries you may have.

Please note: certain weather conditions may alter the months outlined below.
