A Tool for Monitoring White-Fronted Goose Movements
ImageThe UK government now has ambitious targets for the overall contribution of renewable energy to the UK’s energy budget. These higher targets have resulted in an increase in applications for onshore and offshore renewable energy developments. In the UK, many of the renewable resources with the most potential are at their greatest in Scotland. This has of course created some conflict, in particular with respect to wind generation, because of Scotland’s remote habitats and the species of conservation concern, including key bird species, that use these areas. Therefore, developers and statutory bodies have been pressed to seek state of the art assessment methods for accurately gauging potential environmental impacts.
