Scottish Marine and Freshwater Science Volume 5 Number 7: EMEC Fall of Warness Tidal Test Site: Wildlife Observations Project Annual Report

Annual report of the wildlife observation programme underway at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney - Fall of Warness

5. Recommendations

5.1 It is recommended that work should be undertaken to carry out calibration of the land-based wildlife observations. The objectives of this calibration exercise will be:

1. To evaluate how accurately the observers at the land-based vantage points are able to detect, identify and, particularly, locate wildlife species within and at the outermost limits of the observation area, and thus derive site-specific 'detection functions' that can be applied to the analysis of the wildlife data.

2. To geo-reference the Fall of Warness observation area grid squares.
