Windmills of the Mind?

Hello Dhaaarlings...

These large contraptions were spotted on our recent Seaside Sojourn...

It's a Wind Farm of course...
Built to satisfy the increasing demand for electricity to power the never ending growth of housing, business and electronic devices...


Some of the locals apparently kicked up such a "hoo har" that construction was delayed for many years as thousands and thousands of dollars went into lining the pockets of various lawyers...

Something to do with the environmental impact and the effects of building these structures on the habitat of local endangered wildlife namely... this little critter





I figure there isn't much hope for an endangered species if it's likely to go flying into something this big!

I'm quite sure that one of them flew directly into the windscreen of my car during the trip, it was the flash of orange and yellow feathers that caught my eye...

It distracted me from viewing the lovely windmill.
