What are Priority Protected Species?

Certain species found in our countryside are protected from harm or disturbance by European and national law. The list covers hedgehogs and many other small mammals including red squirrels, wild birds, and invertebrates such as particular moths and bees.

The site itself has no ‘official’ cataloging of its indigenous species and is private land so we can’t go and count however all the species listed have been seen and photographed by neighbours around this site since the planning application was discovered.
