29 Apr 2021: On April 29, the Federal Administrative Court overturned the judgment of the Higher Administrative Court (OVG) in Hamburg regarding the dispute over the wind farm and its impact on wildlife sanctuary, submitted by the Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU). The court ruled out temporary shut down as the legalization effect of the original approval from 2002 opposed this, but the proceedings are to be heard again by the OVG. Since the approval, Nabu has filed several lawsuits against the construction and operation of the wind farm.  According to the NABU, as a result of the Butendiek wind farm, the strictly protected red-throated and black-throated divers have lost at least 265 square kilometers of the protected area designated for them. The birds avoid the rotating turbines up to a distance of 16 kilometers.
