c40 Lapwing seen in flight close to the petrol station on Higginshaw Lane Oldham. In previous years sightings around here have been a bit further along the road towards Shaw so possibly using a different roof this year.

An impressive sight yesterday was a good-sized flock of Lapwings (with starlings too) flying around the retail park in Broadheath before landing on Homebase - a quick count in groups of 10 suggested in the region of 110 - 120+ ish Lapwings. For birds that roost on the ground it must be a big advantage not having any mammalian predators up there.

Hi Rob. I couldn't actually make out all the individuals in the flock as they were hunkered down between the roof ridges and Golden Plover do associate with this group.
