Description

The Central Science Laoratory (CSL) Bird Detection Radar was commissioned by Humber Wind Limited to undertake a four-day monitoring exercise during 26.10.2004-29.10.2004 October 2004 into offshore avian flight activity in the vicinity of the proposed Humber Wind Farm. Bird detection allows the remote monitoring of avian flight activity over greater temporal and spatial scales that the human observer is able to condict. The aims of this survey included: to provide a radar assessment of bird flight activity and direction within radar range from the coast out towards the Humber Wind Farm site; to describe the bird movement in relation to weather conditions; to evaluate the radar's ability to detect birds at night at this location; to evaluate the radar's ability to detect falls of arriving migrants; to compare boat-based and shore based observations with radar.
