Most importantly, during two years of monitoring using cameras and radar, not a single bird was recorded colliding with a rotor blade.

The risk of birds colliding with wind turbine blades is sometimes used as an argument against the use of wind power.  Now, a new report – the most comprehensive and technologically advanced in the field to date – shows that seabirds off the UK coast are better at avoiding wind turbine blades than previously thought.   Using radar and cameras, researchers were able to monitor how birds behaved in the Aberdeen bay in... ...
