RADAR ORNITHOLOGY—THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE: A PERSONAL VIEWPOINT $100.00
Authors:  Sidney A. Gauthreaux
Abstract:
Eric Eastwood (March 12, 1910–October 6, 1981) was one of the first to
use radar to study the movement of birds, and many of his studies and those of
other pioneers are summarized in his book, Radar Ornithology published in
1967. He was elected as Fellow of the Royal Society 1968. In the
Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, Vol. 29 (November
1983), p. 177–195, F.E. Jones said the following about Eric Eastwood: “An
observation that was to prove of great interest to Eastwood in later years was
made by operators at a very early CHL type radar station installed at
Happisburgh, on the Norfolk coast. Some echoes were positively identified as
coming from a flock of geese crossing the sea. This observation, made in
1940, was the first record of the flight of birds being followed by radar and it
led to extensive investigations by Eastwood in later years and to the
publication of a book on the subject (Eastwood, 1967).” The CHL (Chain
Home Low) radar system was developed to counter the low-level air defense
threat to the United Kingdom in 1939.
