There is an interesting study of the impact of aircraft on birds and their habitats already listed on this website.

 

These birds fly high over the water to dive for fish. The studies indicate these birds of prey have a “higher prey ( aircraft ) stress response to aircraft – which affects their breeding and hunting.

See the study already published on this website https://fixthejetpath.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/ln_3-1_aircraft_effects_on_birds.pdf
