Scottish Wildlife Trust: Planned wind farm would kill 214 geese every year

Scottish Wildlife Trust
The Scottish Wildlife Trust has today objected to the Clyde extension wind farm in the Upper Clyde Valley. If consented, the 57 turbine wind farm could hold the dubious record for the highest risk of collisions to pink-footed geese in the UK. It is estimated that there will be about 214 pink-footed goose fatalities per year. The wind farm would also cause significant damage to a European protected blanket bog habitat.
