Inis ecologists have been conducting surveys at operational wind farms across the country in July. At one of our study sites, we recently found a dead Greater White- toothed Shrew Crocidura russula whilst undertaking fatality monitoring at operational turbines.
This species was first discovered in Ireland in 2007 and is thought to be spreading throughout the country at about 5km per year with consequent negative effects on the native Pygmy Shrew Sorex minutus.
Inis ecologists regularly conduct bespoke surveys to evaluate the effects of operational wind farms on the resident flora and fauna.
