Vantage Point Survey

Graham conducting a vantage point survey

WFE completed a five year monitoring study of bird movements at an operational wind farm site in Suffolk. WFE had completed the pre-construction surveys, and monitoring was necessary to determine avoidance effects for two sensitive species. We undertook carcass searches and repeat vantage point surveys, and were able to determine actual collision rates and compare them with those projected in the Environmental Impact Assessment. The results have been used to inform overall vulnerability assessments of seabirds and other species.
