AHVLA’s Bird Management Unit is recognised around the world as a leading provider of consultancy, research and training.
We specialise in two industry sectors:
- Aviation, providing aerodrome safeguarding and bird strike services
- Renewable energy, providing support for development proposals and planning applications for both onshore and offshore projects.
We have developed a unique depth and breadth of specialist expertise to support our work in these sectors, including mobile bird radar, sophisticated data processing, modelling systems and analytical skills – a combination not found elsewhere.
AHVLA’s independence guarantees complete impartiality. This is a fact that all stakeholders with an interest in the outcome of our project work find reassuring. Whatever their perspective, they respect the fact that the reports we produce will be of the highest standards for quality and scientific accuracy.

Bird management services
AHVLA offers a wide range of services that deliver environmentally sensitive solutions to safeguarding and bird strike issues. We specialise in planning applications within a safeguarding zone, airport audits, bird management techniques training, bird remains identification and bespoke studies.
Our team of experienced and highly skilled ornithologists can provide accurate, objective and impartial information for development applications. AHVLA’s mobile bird detecting radars allow us to offer unrivalled expertise in Ecological Impact Assessments (EcIAs), Envrionmental Impact Assessments (EIAs), offshore research and conservation research on bats.
Our bird radar equipment can be deployed either on land or at sea and collects data on bird movements round the clock, whatever the weather. Being deployed on numerous sites pre- and post-development and with an easy to understand report at the end of the study, the range of applications for our radar is growing.
AHVLA has extensive experience of monitoring birds using both conventional ornithology and radar-based techniques.
