NatureScot Commissioned Report 614: Analysis of bird and marine mammal data for Fall of Warness tidal test site, Orkney
The purpose of this report is to provide a review of the bird and marine mammal observation data for the EMEC Fall of Warness tidal test site from 2005 to 2011. The aims were to explore relationships (if any) between the more frequently observed bird and mammal species’ site usage and habitat and environmental variables. This report can assist in understanding the spatial and temporal distribution of wildlife at the test site, and specifically enable identification of where and when particular species are more likely to encounter test devices or related deployment activity.
