The main time for nesting birds in the UK is between February and August, but of course depending on factors such as the weather birds can nest earlier or later on in the year.

All nesting birds are protected by the wildlife and country act 1981 as well as European legislation. We care for nature and always ensure an animal presence survey is carried out as per our Environmental policy.

Although the majority of the responsibility lies with the contractor it is important that as a client you are sympathetic to the laws behind disturbing nesting birds. This may result in work being postponed until all nesting birds have gone. It is also a common misconception that certain bird species are not protected under these laws. In fact all wild bird species are protected, as are any eggs and it is an offence to remove them from an unoccupied nest.
