Seabirds warn­ing

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

RSPB Scot­land has warned that any new off­shore wind­farms need care­ful sit­ing to avoid “sig­nif­i­cant harm” to Scot­land seabirds. Scot­land could see an in­flux of new build wind­farms due to change in the way the seadbed around the coun­try’s coasts is leased out to de­vel­op­ers.

The char­ity said: “Lo­ca­tions favoured by seabirds may be un­suit­able for off­shore wind de­vel­op­ment and these ar­eas will need to be pro­tected through any fu­ture leas­ing or planning process.”
