RE: Hyde Area (including Newton and Gee Cross)


At 1.10 am today at least 2 Curlew flew over my house calling continually as I fumbled for my keys (the emphasis on fumbled following a session imbibing the amber nectar). They flew on over the Hyde United ground and were presumably heading for Audenshaw reservoirs. The cloud cover was 100% and very low - not the best sort of weather for migrating I would have thought.
In the past 2 or 3 years I've heard Oystercatchers on several occasions late at night passing overhead in similar low cloud conditions and all presumably heading for Audenshaw reservoirs.
