    Default Birds and wind turbines

    Here's an interesting web page about the effects of windfarms on birds of prey and other wildlife.

    Interesting and disturbing site Nirofo.

    The RSPBs position on wind farms has never sat well.

    Last week I went to see how many birds were killed by the turbine in the school grounds on the road to Dunnet head and I couldn't see one dead bird, presumably the head teacher doesn't pick them up early in the morning when the school is off for summer? Or perhaps there is a covert operation in place by an undercover agency which goes around picking up dead birds and who are secretly sponsored by the BWEA who have a slush fund for such things, the aim is to insidiously reduce our carbon footprint?

    The shame of it all.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.
