|WINDMILLS TO BLAME FOR DEAD
Walkers, trippers and specialists
from the association Gurelur have all witnessed* birds flying into windmills on
wind farms in El Pcrdon, Leitza, Gerinda, Alaitz and Izko. During a recent
foggy spell, members of Gurelur discovered at least eight dead vultures in the
vicinity of the windmills, and the number is probably greater because workers
remove dead birds or they are eaten by other animals. Continued next page..

|BILBAO PLANS TO IMPROVE ITS PARKS AND
Council plans to create two new parks that will increase the offer of 'green
zones' in the metropolis. In Miribilla there will be 80,000 square metres of
park land and in other territorial capitals such as Vitoria and Donostia. The
capital of Bizkaia has five times less 'green zones' than Vitoria, with only
2.88 square metres of parks and gardens per inhabitant. Vitorians, on the other
hand, have the chance to enjoy over 15 square metres per inhabitant and in
Donostia the figure is 12 square metres.
