Bird Nest Removal

Ground Nesting Bird Mitigation

Bird Nest Removal Service

The very first thing to understand when you have a potential conflict with nesting birds is that ALL birds nests are protected by law and it is a criminal offence with a potential prison sentence to take or destroy them, this includes so called pest species such as the feral pigeon. Whilst it may be possible to obtain a licence to remove them this is only possible with the following justification:

  • Preserve public health and safety
  • Conserve wild birds and to conserve flora and fauna
  • Prevent serious damage to livestock and crops
  • Protect flight safety

Legislation also requires that anyone seeking to manage the impact of nesting birds takes a hierarchical approach detailed within an auditable document called an ‘Integrated Management Plan,’ and to explore non lethal methods before taking any eggs or nests.

NBC are leading experts in bird management with 28 years experience supporting clients helping them to navigate the conflict that can occur between nature and business so as to minimise the impact to wildlife and the clients operations whilst maintaining compliant to legislation.

Below are listed some examples of the bird nest removal services NBC offer to help clients manage conflict with birds:

  • Consultation. Experts available to help produce, integrated management plans (IMP), Precautionary Working Method Statements (PWMS) and licence applications.
  • Disruption programs. Ecology dogs, hawks and falcons can create a predatory (non lethal) presence to encourage birds to nest in alternative habitat.
  • Creation of diversion habitat. To encourage birds away from project area minimising impact to populations.
  • Surveys. Inspections to identify potential and active nest sites.
  • Deterrent systems. Lasers and other technology to deter nesting birds.
