Vulture and Wind Farms

Our vulture study featured in Nature News

Our study investigating why certain species of vultures are prone to collisions with wind turbines while others are seemingly not, has been featured in the news section of Nature. Our study, led by Prof Graham Martin, reveals that certain vulture species are blind to their direction of travel if they are not looking directly ahead. The study was done in collaboration with Dr Campbell Murn at The Hawk Conservancy Trust. The full study can be read here, in the journal Ibis.
