32.Wind farm causes eagle deaths

"Breeding results on Smøla have been strikingly poor compared with the 30 years before the wind farm was built, both on the site itself and the remainder of the island." —Alv Ottar Folkestad, NOF (BirdLife in Norway)

BirdLife 2006

http://www.birdlife.org/news/news/2006/02/norway.html



Sea eagle research at Smøla wind farm

"Extensive research is being carried out at the Smøla wind farm to prevent sea eagles crashing from flying into wind turbines. So far this year, ten dead sea eagles have been recovered at the wind farm. The sea eagle population on Smøla is, however, robust and has increased since the construction of the wind farm."
