"Wessex Water were very happy to have New Leaf Ecology working with us during a time when we had a particularly heavy workload. Alison helped out on a variety of schemes at various stages including initial preliminary ecological assessment, initial bat surveys, badger sett monitoring and hand search and watching brief for dormice during hedge removals. She was very reliable, wrote good quality reports and provided excellent advice on a variety of protected species issues. I would have no hesitation in hiring Alison again if we ever need some extra help." Jamie Bowkett, Senior Ecologist, Wessex Water
