CSCS and Great Crested Newt Licence
Congratulations to Flora Haynes of Adonis Ecology who has just gained her CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card AND Natural England great crested newt survey licence!

The CSCS card provides proof that the holder has the required training and qualifications for their work on construction sites, and has passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test. Flora is therefore able to supervise activities affecting ecology on active construction sites.

As it is illegal to deliberately disturb great crested newts, or intentionally or recklessly disturb them in a place of shelter or protection, a licence is required to undertake surveys with the traditional methods as these methods disturb newts. Flora is therefore now able to lead great crested newt surveys involving bottle trapping, torching, netting and egg searching.
