Perhaps it's time to consult the MOD too?

Here's a photograph of a giant RAF Boeing C-17 Globemaster flying low over Straitgate Farm last week; it's not just civil aircraft that use Exeter Airport.

In response to Oxfordshire's Minerals Plan the MOD wrote: "it is crucial that the MOD is invited to comment further once specific sites have been allocated to ensure that the birdstrike risk is appropriately addressed". In response to DCC's Waste Plan the MOD wrote: "MOD reviews the development of waste management facilities; quarry restoration; wetland features as these have the potential to attract and support large and, or, flocking bird species hazardous to aircraft safety".
