C60 from Oldham Town Centre at 16.10 this afternoon. They were low enough to be obscured by buildings around Mumps Bridge but from the size probably north of Oldham Edge. Appeared as 2 parallel rows from the SW before reforming as a conventional skein and heading E , as if they were changing direction.
