A young eagle was cut in two by a spinning windmill in Skagen. Danish Ornithological Society is in turmoil and believes that poorly sited wind turbines may cost several birds. The dead bird with a wingspan of 2.25 meters was found on the ground Sunday morning.
The image shows clouds forming in the wakes of the front row of wind turbines of the Horns Rev wind farm off the coast of Denmark. The downstream wind turbines lose 20% or 30% of their power, and sometimes even more, relative to the front row. The spacing of the turbines is 7 rotor diameters.
