Description

ECON carried out boat based surveys at the site of the Lincs Offshore Wind Farm to observe the number and location of birds across the wind farm and the local area. A total of 10,356 ind. of 78 identified species (including subspecies) were recorded within the Lincs study area from boat-based surveys over the study period.  This is presented in the report: Ornithological surveys of the proposed Lincs offshore wind farm and the local area.

The numerically most abundant species (>500 ind.) seen were guillemot (1,447 ind.), pink-footed goose (1,334 ind.), common gull (924 ind.), razorbill (763 ind.), little gull (790 ind.), great black-backed gull (618 ind.) and herring gull (613 ind.). Other commonly sighted species (100–500 ind.) were: common scoter, red-throated diver, fulmar, gannet, lesser black-backed gull, kittiwake, sandwich tern and starling. The numbers of all species seen and their respective population estimates both in the study area and the site are presented in the report: Numbers, Populations and Densities of Species Observed on Lincs Site and Study Area during Boat Based Surveys.
