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.

I'm currently writing species accounts for Lapwing and Golden Plover for the Greater Manchester County Report. The basis of the report is the database of records formally submitted to the Greater Manchester Bird Recording Group which is in the safe keeping of Ian McKerchar and Steve Atkins.

I was rather shocked to find that there were rather few records of roof roosts of either species in the database when there are so many postings on this thread, so I took a closer look. It transpired that only about a quarter of the sightings below were ever submitted to GMBRG. Both these species are of conservation concern. Lapwing is red-listed and Golden Plover is amber-listed, both in part due to declines in their wintering populations - WE NEED YOUR RECORDS!

What concerns me most is that this situation must apply across the whole range of bird species and that the conservation of our birds may suffer just because people can't be bothered to submit their records. If you can post on this forum, you can enter the record on a spreadsheet, or Rodis or Mapmate or BirdTrack - Ian and Steve have provided enough options to make life easier for you. Neither of them have the time to read every post on the forum and type the details into the database.

Please make it a New Year's resolution to record your bird sightings properly - but start NOW!
