ECOFACT’s ornithologists have recently commenced a number of breeding bird surveys at proposed wind farm sites in Co Cork, Co Offaly, Co Westmeath, Co Donegal and in Northern Ireland. ECOFACT is the leading independent provider of bird surveys in Ireland, and preparing Ornithological Impact Assessments (OIA) is one of our key areas of expertise. Please see our main website for further information. If you need a bird survey contact us immediately at +353 (61) 419477.
We have extensive experience of Impact Assessment for bird populations and habitats and we have unparalleled experience in the design and implementation of a wide range of mitigation measures for birds. We also have extensive experience of Collision Risk Modelling (CRM) and provide this for all sites that we assess for proposed wind energy developments.
One if the main species we are currently surveying for is hen harrier. The gallery below shows some images of current ECOFACT hen harrier surveys.
