    Note on interpretation of UK Birdstrike Data

    • The CAA's view is that the volume of birdstrikes reported at a particular airport or aerodrome does not imply greater hazard.

    • Users should exercise caution in forming any conclusion or opinion based on quantitative data alone.

    • The CAA disclaims all responsibility for any interpretation which might be made by others in receipt of this birdstrike data.
