Late post for approx 1.30pm yesterday, whilst driving along M60 had 30+ lapwings come up, clearly from a roof. Having looked at map this was from industrial estate on Cromwell Road, Bredbury, which contains Euro Car parts amongst others.

14/10/17 mid morning

47 Lapwing counted on the south west slope of Car People Ashton Moss. Later the whole flock was in the air above the building, quick count and estimate between 60 and 70 birds in total. Birds seem to be settling either side of the ridge making an accurate passing count difficult.

Also, on Friday 13th Higginshaw Lane Oldham, again as passing by so rough estimate, 100+ Lapwing on the roof of Barrett Engineering Steel. This is close to the traditional roof sites further along Higginshaw Lane either side of Moss Lane.

The regular group of C 30 Lapwings are roosting on what is now Farmfoods at Newton Heath near the old silk mill. They were there yesterday between 11.50 a.m and 13.00 and also last Tuesday at around 11.00 a.m. I thought there were Golden Plover in with them on Tuesday but both times the bus went past too quickly for really good views.

Bizarre sight at 11.15 this morning opposite the Greyhound pub in Bredbury. 12 Lapwing settled on the roof of the houses opposite. Presumably downed by the heavy rain and strong wind at the time.

A decent flock of Lapwing has built up around Bredbury Park Industrial Estate, probably 300+ were flying around near the BP station early afternoon.
The flock was splitting with some remaining airborne and some settling briefly on both modern and old industrial buildings behind the petrol station.
