This morning, two carrion crows spent five minutes or so in aerial combat with a buzzard in the zone of the new eight-turbine wind farm near Tetney.

During their manoeuvres, all three seemed to take into calculation the proximity of the rotating turbine blades.

All well and good, but scanning another part of the wind fam, I saw the corpses of three black corvids under one turbine and possibly another under a different turbine.

I was only able to inspect one. It was headless but probably a carrion crow.

The birds may have been shot or died for another reason, but turbine collision seems to be the most likely.
