NatureScot Commissioned Report 623: Boat and aerial survey protocols for seabirds at wave and tidal search areas in north western Scotland
This report, funded by Marine Scotland and completed in 2010, provides an overview of appropriate offshore boat and aerial survey protocols for birds, tailored to the six search areas for wave energy and tidal stream development in north western Scotland. It also outlines a proposed suite of surveys, over two years, that should ensure a) the collection of high quality data in a scientifically robust manner and b) inter-project consistency.
