Abstract: 

Large numbers of wind farms are currently being planned in the offshore environment, and the first offshore wind farms have already been erected. Notwithstanding the benefits of this development, collision victims among birds are considered one of the major ecological drawbacks of wind energy. Improving knowledge of the collision risks of birds with offshore wind turbines would have benefits for the assessment of the effects of wind farm developments at both the site-specific and cumulative levels, and thus help inform the consenting process for future offshore wind developments.
