Case Studies

Since Enfys Ecology started trading in 2010 there has been a large variety of projects which we have been involved in, from small projects such as conversion of a single building or outhouse, preliminary ecological appraisals for larger developments, to working an large infrastructure projects.  No job is too small or too large, so if you have any enquiries please contact us.  The work we have carried out includes survey work to mitigation licences and ecological clerk of works roles.

Examples of work carried out


Dong Energy – Ecological Clerk of Works

Enfys ecology has been working on the Burbo bank windfarm extension project since 2011.  2011 – 2013 involved the surveying of the cable route area for protected species with RPS to finalise the exact location of the cable route.  This involved surveying for great crested newts, dormice, water voles, otters, barn owls, badgers and wintering birds.  In 2014 newt fencing was erected on the site and newt trapping and translocation carried out ready for works to commence over winter.

Since 2015 Enfys ecology has been the ecological clerk of works for the project, supervising works, monitoring and maintaining the newt fence, working with the client and the principal contractor for the project.  The works are now complete with most of the route reinstated.  Enfys has been involved in the habitat creation by designing and supervising the creation of the ponds, and also tree planting within the mitigation area.

Testimonial from Natasha Litten, Consents Project Manager:-

‘Enfys Ecology have been working on the Burbo Bank Extension onshore substation and cable route for over two years carrying out survey work for numerous species and ensuring that the civils contractors are working within the environmental constraints of the project. I have found them to be very conscientious, knowledgeable and able to ensure that high standards are being maintained on the project whilst working with the sometimes changeable demands of the programme. Rhian and her colleagues have been an integral part of the project team and always approached the work with a positive attitude (and a smile).’
