Where do eagle owls fly when night falls?

... and how high do they fly in doing so? These are just some of the questions addressed in a current BioConsult SH project. In particular the potential vulnerability of these nocturnal birds to collide with wind turbines will be assessed. Several eagle owls in Schleswig-Holstein have been equipped with GPS transmitters within the framework of a telemetry study. The first months of investigation yielded interesting findings on the size of the home range and gave insight into which areas are used by eagle owls apart from the breeding site. For further information on the project and the first results please see here.
