This is a detailed and informed assessment of the impact of the Glenmorie Wind Farm on avian species by Marc Duchamp. It was not allowed at the recent planning enquiry, possibly due to it’s presentation out of time, but should be presented at any subsequent PLI. It is strange that we need to rely on an overseas Nature Conservancy group rather than our own RSPB to protect our endangered birds. Perhaps, considering the Royal dislike of wind turbines, HRH may see fit to remove the “R” from the RSPB to be replaced perhaps by the initials SPIT or “Society for the Protection of Intolerable Turbines”.

Wind V. Coal
Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
