Purple wind turbines?

I heard something on the News this morning which lifted my spirits. Scientists have been studying wind turbines and noticed that the white or light grey colour which is the norm attracts lots of insects. And where you have insects you have birds that follow. And birds and the blades of wind turbines don’t make good bed fellows. But… if you painted them purple then the insects are not so interested thus saving the lives of thousands of birds.

Now, isn’t that interesting? And wouldn’t that be a lovely sight?
