Reptile Survey

As reptiles are elusive and if a habitat that is known to be utilised by the six common species is found, a full reptile survey will be required to establish presence, population and mitigation.

This involves placing out felt tiles or ‘tins’, so that reptiles can be found. The ‘tins’ are place in suitable habitat and across the site and are then checked at regular intervals in suitable weather conditions to establish species, population and use of the site.

If found to be present mitigation and enhancement is designed, followed by trapping the reptiles out of the site to a safe place.

This survey is optimal between April and September (with July and August being sub-optimal). Protected by the wildlife and countryside act 1981 (as amended), it an offence to knowingly kill common reptiles. There are two European protected species with limited ranges in the UK.

Cherryfield Ecology uses standard survey techniques to establish species and mitigation requirements.
