Possible Emissions Monitoring

I wouldn’t be surprised if my position totals are up today based on some relatively nearby activity:

It doesn’t look like regular mapping, because the granularity of the tracks look exceptionally fine.
Appears to be activity from Bio-Air. Anyone have more information/ideas ?
The craft are BIO02 and BIO05

They do visual and LiDAR surveying with a focus on environmental-impact studies (wind farm impacts on birds, nature protection area monitoring, etc).

Given the tight spacing of the tracks (200m) and the long length of each orbit, these are probably training exercises. Also, the particular aircraft in flight right now is brand new, so maybe it’s a shakedown cruise. That is, unless Slough and Woking are host to wind farms?
