Yes, they  certainly are a nuisance for me, but no you will need a license. K

Interesting, I thought that was covered under the general licences (GL40/GL41/GL42) that were re-instated after the dumb-F******* that happened with them because of that buffoon off nature watch

How to avoid what? 
The original question seems to be how to deal with the public.

Nowt to do with the GL Paddy, all live birds nests are protected, regardless of species or pest status.

I believe it is only an offence if you " recklessly or intentionally " disturb birds or nests ...

That might explain why I couldn’t find a single example of a tree surgeon (or whatever, you know what I mean) being prosecuted for damaging a nest in the course of his work.

If others can find one then fine.

So @Khriss if your ‘how to avoid’ is how to avoid prosecution then it’s a bit like how to avoid being mauled by a leopard in Bury St Edmunds, simply put, it’s not going to happen.

We’ve pulled off loads of jobs when we’ve found live nests, and had to reschedule.

Certainly left trees and hedges in some very odd looking shapes!

It’s a ballache, but the right thing to do.

 

If I said there hasn’t been any collateral damage over the years though, I’d be a liar.

 

You’ve just got to do the best you can, basically, and use a bit of common sense.

 

If I was asked to remove a 60m line of large connies at this time of year, for instance, with doves flapping about in them, it’s time to talk the client into plan B.
