25 flew high SE over Watergrove Reservoir at 09:25 hrs. Possibly the earliest ever autumn date in Rochdale for returning birds.

The 33 seen over Elton Reservoir by Simon Johnson on 5th were also the earliest for Bury according to the GMBRG database.

The earliest dates for GM are 16 west on 30/08/2012 seen from Georges Lane, Horwich and ten at Pennington Flash on 30/08/2004.

Unless anyone has any additional sightings?

A decent-sized flock went fairly low ESE viewed from Whitebeam Close, Timperley at 11:20 a.m., in a very rushed count in groups of ten i estimated approx 240, but if someone told me that was a bit too many i wouldn't disagree. Could well be the same group that John had later, perhaps turned back to the Lancs mosses for some reason.

Late post for yesterday 24.12.18

In the fields just outside of Partington at the junction of Moss Lane and the A6144, looked to be 20ish..
Unfortunately driving and couldn't stop.

This is roughly where they were a couple years ago too.

Obviously no chance to go back today, but worth a mooch tomorrow..


Happy Xmas BTW..
