hello, I've just joined this site on the recommendation of a friend, so I'm not sure whether this is of interest or not, but my house overlooks Manchester City's old ground (Maine Road) and there's an artificial lake there at the moment that has attracted plenty of birds over the course of the summer. I'm pretty sure lapwings were breeding there (at least, they seemed to be there every day) and I've spotted ringed plovers there as well.

30 lapwings carpet world thursday oct 11th and probably the same no on sat 13th but some birds in the central valley of the roof. Think the Tesco birds were probably the birds that used hollinwood in past years. Certainly seen roosts at both sites on same trip to work with no sign of movement between them

The Newton Heath birds started building up again in July with a small group (a couple of family parties?) on the 12th. Further sightings on Carpet World roof on the 30th, followed by 6th, 11th,(at least 12 birds), 13th 15th & 17th Sept. Stayed at about that no. on 15th, 16th & 20th then at least 30 birds in flight towards the roof on 26th. Similar nos on 28th, continuing on 1st & 2nd Oct then 4th to 8th. Day off today so no observation. All these sightings at approx 9.50 a.m. on way to work. Will be interested to see if any birds use the roost on the roof of Rose tissues at Hollinwood this year. Only 1 sighting all last winter despite regular use for several winters before

I certainly don't intend on starting this with every post (honestwink.gif), but whilst Riggers has started us off with 'rooftop' Lapwings and these sightings are of particular interest could all future posts on the subject be posted onto this tread please so we can all access all the information at once and see just where they are roosting and track their numbers.

Many thanks
