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.

That's correct David

I was visiting the Screwfix store which is on the opposite side of the Car People building from Sheldon Way. So if they are resting on that side they will probably not be seen by folk travelling along Sheldon Way or using the trams.

Posted this using iPad just to check if double spacing is a device problem but it is the same as with a PC.

If I have my bearings correctly aligned, that would be the section of roof not visible from Sheldon Way? That could explain my count of three on Monday. The sneaky devils.

After a lengthy absence the Lapwing are finally back on the old Seddon Atkinson building on Higginshaw Lane, Royton.

On the drive home last night about 4:15 probably between 20 - 30 Lapwing, tonight even more maybe as many as 60 birds.

Good to see them back where they've been for many years.
