A programme of aerial surveys have been undertaken by the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust’s (WWT) Wetlands Advisory Service (WAS) from winter 2004/05 through to summer 2005. This has provided large-scale survey data covering the nearshore waters in Northwest England (from Anglesey to the Solway Firth), in the Greater Wash and in the Thames (from Flamborough Head, Yorkshire, to Sandwich Bay, Kent). These data will inform the environmental impact assessments of offshore wind farms (OWF) and aid potential marine Special Protected Area (SPA) identification (Johnstone et al 2002). The interim and final reports are provided within this series.
