This project was conducted by Environmentally Sustainable Systems Ltd. (ESS) and concerns the statistical findings of the ornithological survey data collected between August 2005 and November 2006, including maps of data collected from August 2005 to March 2006. There are species of highest conservation concern around the Rhyl Flats wind farm for which an ecologically significant reduction would be of concern. The list contained eleven species (red-throated diver, fulmar, cormorant, shag, common scoter, kittiwake, common tern, sandwich tern, little tern, guillemot and razorbill), which are the qualifying interest for the nearby SSSIs and SPAs. Both aerial and boat based surveys were undertaken.
