Ornithological Surveys

As an established and experienced consultancy, we fully appreciate our clients' needs, but we retain the independent integrity that is required to conduct high-quality surveys and assessments.

We have specialist knowledge of many bird species, and especially those of upland habitats. Our staff members have been involved in organising and participating in national surveys of several species including golden eagle, black-throated diver, dotterel, whimbrel, greenshank, black grouse and merlin, as well as developing novel species-specific survey techniques.

All survey methods used by NRP are consistent with recommended guidance and methodologies (e.g. SNH 2017; Gilbert et al 1998; Hardy et al 2013).
