Wildlife fears over Hampshire wind farm

Fur and feather could be in danger from the proposed wind farm in Hampshire, campaigners have warned.

Wonston Parish Council vice-chairman John Holt said the proposed location of 14 turbines at Bullington Cross is on the main flight line of birds migrating south from Scotland and Scandanavia.

He warned birds and bats will suffer losses. And in the longer term, farmland could be downgraded to a brownfield site, making it ripe for development.

He urged locals to “fiercely defend” the site for their grandchildren.

Meanwhile, Wonston Parish Council is to canvas local opinion before deciding whether to object to or support the scheme.
