Field's located between Fairywell Wood and Brooks Drive just south of the housing on Whitebeam & Alder Drives. Didn't look like it was stopping though!

They are resident in the local area Jeff, but more often seen over the road in Stamford Park where the woodland is more mature.

Post match discussion with my fellow coach when they flew overhead calling!

Mind you, for all the goal mouth action I might as well have been birding!
