We are delighted to announce that Alex Tompkinson ACIEEM has joined our team this month.  Alex has over seven years’ post graduate experience in ecological consultancy.  Whilst Alex is experienced in all aspects of ecological surveying and consultancy, she has joined to specifically focus on the management and development of our bat related projects in Devon and Somerset West and Taunton.

Alex holds a Natural England Level 2 Bat Licence and has a diverse range of experience, including:

  • Undertaking preliminary bat roost assessments and bat activity surveys
  • Habitat Evaluation Procedure (such as for the North Somerset and Mendip Bats SAC)
  • Bat sound analysis
  • Undertaking impact assessments
  • Advising on avoidance measures and designing bat mitigation for planning applications
  • Compiling numerous precautionary Non-licensed Method Statements and Natural England Bat Mitigation Licences in respect to development (A13)
  • Providing ecological toolbox talks and supervising works impacting bat roosts

Alex’s experience combined with a friendly and pragmatic approach to projects mirrors that of our other staff and she has already established herself as a key member of our team and a real asset to our business and clients.

In addition to managing projects Alex will be overseeing development of our bat related services and survey team skills.  Alex has provided training in bat analysis and a range of survey skills as well as peer reviewing reports/ plans.  She enjoys developing fellow ecologists’ careers and is a mentor to a number of colleagues and budding ecologists.  Alex provided training on Analook to the Devon Greater Horseshoe Project for which she won “Volunteer of the Year”.
