Wind Farms and Red Kites

The aim of this lecture is to present on Wind Farms and Red Kites. The read kite is under threat in a number of European countries. The causes include poisoning, electrocution, closures of garbage dumps, shortages of live prey, shooting, predation  (racoons), etc. As there is no evidence that red kites, or any raptor for that matter, is afraid of wind turbines, but there is plenty of evidence that they fly close to them, their disappearance is due in all likelyhood to death by collision.
