Windfarm cover-up over golden eagle deaths

Tim Pauling — The Press and Journal — November 3, 2014

Environmentalists and anti-windfarm campaigners suspect a cover-up over the number of golden eagles killed by wind turbines.

They believe a decision to put back a census of bird numbers by two years is an attempt to hide the facts from the public.

Scottish Natural Heritage said there was nothing sinister about the move, and there were practical and official reasons for extending the 10-year gap between censuses from 2003 to 2015.

The claim of a cover-up followed last week’s revelation that wind turbines have killed more birds of prey this year than poisoning and shooting combined.

Mark Duchamp, chairman of the World Council for Nature and president of Save the Eagles International, said there was no reason to delay the survey into golden eagle numbers.
