A series of aerial surveys collecting APEM were contracted by NaREC to produce an ornithological assessment to provide information on the current ornithological interest of the Blyth Offshore Demonstration Project and its surrounds to provide information for the ES. Several methods were used; nine aerial surveys took place between September 2010 and July 2011; six boat based surveys between October 2010 and January 2011; and monthly shore count and vantage point counts surveys from October 2010 to July 2012.
