Data from: Effect of tower base painting on willow ptarmigan collision rates with wind turbines

Bård Stokke, Torgeir Nygard, Ulla Falkdalen, Hans Pedersen & Roel May
1. Birds colliding with turbine rotor blades is a well-known negative consequence of wind-power plants. However, there has been far less attention to the risk of birds colliding with the turbine towers, and how to mitigate this risk. 2.

By employing a...
