Bird monitoring at offshore wind farms in the Belgian part of the North Sea

Gepubliceerd op 30/11/2013

The Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) is in charge of investigating changes in seabird distribution following the offshore wind farm development at the Belgian part of the North Sea. Since 2005, three years before the construction of the very first offshore wind turbine, INBO therefore performs monthly seabird surveys through the impact and control areas of the two operational wind farms, thus following a BACI approach.
