Protected Species Surveys
Reuben Singleton has over 25 years professional experience in surveying for a range of protected species and advising on what is required to comply with current UK legislation.
Surveys for many of these species can only be carried out at certain times of year, for example, surveys to effectively determine the presence or absence of great crested newt in a pond can only be undertaken in spring and early summer. Advice is available on survey timings.
Reuben is the vice-county recorder for Peeblesshire for the National Moth Recording Scheme and he undertakes surveys for Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) and Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies).
Reuben is well connected within the invertebrate recording community and is able to recommend the relevant experts in all invertebrate groups.
