Abstract: 

In this part of the HRA screening process, it is necessary to determine whether the individuals of species recorded within the Argyll Array Offshore Wind Farm ornithological survey area during baseline surveys may potentially form part of a qualifying interest of a European site with an ornithological interest: namely a SPA (including candidate and proposed sites) and/or a Ramsar site, by utilising both the designated site and the survey area at some point of their life cycle, i.e. there may be some degree of connectivity.

 

This includes a range of marine, coastal, terrestrial and freshwater sites which were identified during consultation as being capable of being affected by the Argyll Array Offshore Wind Farm on the basis of the qualifying interests for which the site is designated, the geographical position of the site in relation to the Argyll Array Offshore Wind Farm and the nature of the project.
