|All wild bird species are legally protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended) from any form of disturbance between the onset of nest building and until such time as any dependent young have left the nest, principally from the beginning of March to the end of August.|
|All species of bats and their roosts (whether the bats are present or not) are protected from reckless killing, disturbance or destruction under both national and European legislation. Cracks, cavities and holes in trees and buildings can provide suitable places for bats to rest or hibernate; these should be carefully inspected prior to carrying out any works. If bats are discovered during work on trees or are suspected of being present, the relevant work should be halted and Natural England (formerly English Nature) notified and further advice sought (http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/).
