25 minutes to get from Leigh to Stockport, wouldn't be a problem and would stand to reason considering their usual flight path across the county.

Ian,

I've re-considered my 1000 estimate and think that it was too high - I'm revising it to 500 - 600 - a huge discrepancy I know but in my defence I was looking out ofthe window at work and as a Civil Servant I'm not used to doing that until the afternoons - mornings are for drinking tea!!

This would also explain my second mistake - they were of course heading south-east, not south west....

I wonder if what I saw was the combined fllocks from Leigh?

If possible could all users post their Pink-footed Geese sightings to this thread, along with approximate numbers (exact if you have themsmile.gif), flight direction and time, this will give us all a better view of thier movements in the county and to possibly track them as they fly through.
