Spalding Associates staff include two full time senior ecologists licensed by Natural England to complete bat surveys and handle bats where necessary. We also have eight trusted associates we can call upon for other bat related activities or to help when times get busy.

We routinely provide initial bat and barn owl surveys to architects, developers, land owners and property owners. If after an initial survey further bat surveys are required we have the staff, expertise and equipment to complete anything from simple bat emergence surveys on a barn conversion to long term studies for major developments.
