We undertake ecology surveys (especially bird surveys & habitat surveys) biodiversity assessments, and assess ecosystem services and planning impacts

Led by Chartered Biologist Dr Tim Reed (FCIEEM), Tim Reed Ecological Consultants Ltd operates across the UK and globally, and undertake ecology surveys, bird surveys, biodiversity assessments, and critically evaluates planning proposals, ecosystem service risks and opportunities 


We can put together bespoke teams of specialists to work in the field or the boardroom, in the UK, Tropics or at the Poles.


We work on sites as various as individual small site developments through to major operational areas. We present results and advice for practical client benefit based on an in-depth understanding of survey methodologies and biodiversity and ecosystem services assessments, both in situ and from an individual client or company strategic perspective.


In the last five years we have worked across the UK on individual properties as well as in Ecuadorian rainforest, Congolese forests and savannah, Pakistani deserts and offshore Norway.


In the UK this has included small housing applications, a review of survey adequacy for a major UK charity,  EIA assessments for road impacts and a major review of bird disturbance in the UK, as well as Expert Witness work at Public Inquiries. We have also trained staff in a major NGO on how to find pitfalls in EIAs.


We have developed impact and monitoring studies onshore and offshore in the UK and around the world.


Our knowledge and analytical skills are sought for Public Inquiries as Expert Witness and presentations.
