Glenmount deadline extended to 10th March

from Craiglee

This beautiful photo shows exactly the area (between lochs Finlas and Doon) which would be covered by turbines if the Glenmount proposal goes ahead. (Click here to see other equally stunning images of this walk up to the summit of Craiglee).

Does the area look empty? It might interest you to know that the developers’ own bird surveys have revealed that the area of the proposed wind farm is used by no fewer that 84 species of birds, of 44 are of conservation concern.  An amazing 40 species (24 of them threatened) actually have breeding territories on the site. Species seen at Glenmount, and protected by law, include Hen Harrier, Golden Eagle, Merlin, Peregrine, Goshawk, Hobby, Black Grouse, Golden Plover, Curlew … we can provide the full list if you’d like.
