Hi all

Does anyone know of any literature about hot air balloons
disturbing bird, especially wetland birds. 

(I found, via Google, one report from Holland of all ducks
leaving a wetland as a hot air balloon flew over.)

This issue arises because of increasing numbers of landings
and launches being allowed in our parks.
