Please forgive me if this has been covered already: I did a search but the right topic did not appear.
Please could someone advise on the taking and posting of photographs of protected species, e.g. Common Lizard... can these be photographed with zoom at respectable distance and without causing disturbance so long as it is not a nest-site or equivalent, please?
I was told (and it may well be true...) that some particularly rare/threatened species, perhaps those like Fen-Raft spiders, require a licence/permit.
How do we learn or know these things, please? Is there a website or list, please?
Thank you everyone!
