Effecten van windturbines op de fauna in Vlaanderen
In Dutch. Instituut voor Natuur- en Bosonderzoek (Nature and Forest Institute), Brussels, Belgium. English Abstract: Effects of wind turbines on fauna in Flanders Birds and bats can collide with wind turbines, or encounter the vortex wake behind the turbines. They can also become disturbed in their breeding, resting, and foraging areas, or during migration. Therefore, the impact on fauna was studied on 7 wind farm locations in Flanders (=northern part of Belgium). At 2 additional locations, a reduced random test . . . Complete article »

Wind turbines and birds in Flanders
The average number of collision fatalities in different European wind farms on land varies between a few birds up to 64 birds per turbine per year (Langston and Pullan 2003; Everaert 2006a; Everaert 2007; see Table 1). Also within one wind farm, the impact can strongly differ between individual turbines (Everaert et al. 2002; Everaert & Stienen 2006), clearly showing that ‘site selection’ can play an important role in limiting the number of collision fatalities. … Study results clearly show that . . .

Impact of wind turbines on birds in Zeebrugge (Belgium)
Published in Biodiversity and Conservation, November 2006 Abstract: We studied the impact of a wind farm (line of 25 small to medium sized turbines) on birds at the eastern port breakwater in Zeebrugge, Belgium, with special attention to the nearby breeding colony of Common Tern Sterna hirundo, Sandwich Tern Sterna sandvicensis and Little Tern Sterna albifrons. With the data of found collision fatalities under the wind turbines, and the correction factors for available search area, search efficiency and scavenging, we . . . Complete article »
