While out doing some site work for one of our solar farm projects in Ireland, one of our surveyors came across this grey partridge and its chicks nesting in the long grass.
Can you spot the chick in the plumage?
Fortunately the bird was not disturbed and the chicks will have fully fledged prior to any potential disturbance from future work. Solar farms when carefully planned and managed provide significant opportunities for ecological enhancement. Our ecologists, having worked on over 45 solar projects across the UK and Ireland to date, can help provide this input into projects, which can be done simply and cost effectively.
