Birds are a vital part of the UK’s biodiversity and are protected by law. Quarries can often become home to protected birds of prey, such as the peregrine falcon, as well as other species like the sand martin. This Nature After Minerals (NAM) training course will provide information on the law relating to the protection of birds and their nests, and the legal obligations of site owners and managers. You will learn about the ecology and habitat requirements for key species, and how to manage the locations these birds will choose to feed and nest in, to encourage them away from planned extraction areas. After lunch there will be a site visit to look at specific features that are attractive to these key species, and how to manage sites to provide a safe home to protected birds whilst managing the legal and operational risks entailed.
