  • Bat call surveys
  • Grassland assessment
  • Aquatic insect surveys
  • Fixed point photography
  • Dormouse nest box monitoring
  • Breeding bird survey
  • And many more...


Experience required

Previous experience of surveying is useful but not essential for most surveys. All you need is the enthusiasm to come out regularly and the drive to learn more about our wonderful local wildlife.
