Tracking down the eagle owl – the eagle owl research project on television

BioConsult SH on television! The NDR television programme “NaturNah” features the eagle owl research project. The report is scheduled for broadcast on Tuesday, 25 September at 18:15 (rerun on Thursday, 27 September at 11:30).

The camera accompanies biologists Thomas Grünkorn and Jorg Welcker from nocturnal capture of the eagle owls and fitting of the GPS transmitters to evaluation of the data in the office.

The eagle owl is Germany's largest owl species. The research project investigates habitat use and flight behaviour of the nocturnal eagle owl in the vicinity of existing wind farms. Aim is to provide a more accurate estimate of the risk for eagle owls to collide with wind turbines.
