Bad a Cheo wind farm Environmental Clerk of Works


Hawk-eye bird deterrence

Client: Innogy

We’re looking forward to providing EnvCoW services for Innogy at the new Bad a Cheo windfarm construction project in Caithness, where we have just started preconstruction surveys. Main construction activity will start in April.  At present, we’re checking the plantation for crossbills and pine marten while site investigation works are going on and keeping an eye out for birds looking to settle in the open ground areas of the site, with our EnvCoW and bird team doing a grand job as human scarecrows. This, and the use of static bird deterrents, persuades the birds to settle to nest slightly away from the zone of works so that they are not disturbed whilst breeding.
