About this book

The report analyses the literature into the effects of windfarms on birds and suggests some guidance for assessing their impact and the precautions to be taken when selecting sites. The location selected for windfarms is of vital importance. The main potential hazards for birds are disturbance, leading to their exclusion from an area or barring their movement; death by collision; and loss of or damage to their habitat due to the turbines and their infrastructure.
