The BTO has been providing advice about the potential ornithological impacts of renewable energy schemes since the 1980s, with BTO scientists working to improve our understanding of the impacts of wind farms on birds in order to help minimise any negative effects. This short BTO Research Note highlights key projects that BTO scientists have been involved in which have helped to improve our knowledge of the interactions between birds and wind farms.
