Abstract: 

Sub-group topics:

  • Update/reorganizing of the list of references
  • Compilation of data on bat mortality per country
  • Updating of tables on monitoring studies done in Europe and on bats ́ behaviour in relation to windfarms
  • Mitigation and compensation measures
  • Estimation of mortality rate taking into consideration predation, efficiency and controlled area; choose of best estimator for Europe
  • Impact of mortality rate on populations
  • Deterrents
  • Maximum foraging distances of species and Detectability coefficients to compare activity indices
  • Collect national guidelines
  • Use of dogs vs humans during carcass searches
  • Comparing measurement of activity at ground level and rotor height
  • Small Wind Turbines
  • Offshore windfarms
  • Wind farms and forests
  • Implementation of mitigation and post-construction monitoring
  • 200m buffer distance to habitats particularly important for bats
