More important to my way of thinking is that Windfarms may also also 
kill humans.

There is some interesting data if you go to the following site and 
click on accidents.


349 accidents are described since the 1970's of which  41 were 
fatal.  The Caithness Group point out that their data is not 
comprehensive.  That they little data from either Denmark or Holland.
CWIF state that the data may only be the "tip of the iceberg."
