21 lapwings on hepworth and hall opticians at newtown wigan.behind it is wigan fire station where there were more.i could see 12 but as it is a flat roof and 3 storeys high i could only see the birds on the edges.so dont know exactly how many but the occasional fluttering bird gave the impression there were more.

Re: The Seddon Atkinson building on Higginshaw Lane.

I drive past this building at least twice a day so am well used to seeing the colony of Lapwings that inhabit this rooftop. They have been there for many years in varying numbers but I think they are doing as well this year as any I can remember.

Just been to pick the Wife up from work and at 6 o'clock and was treated to the sight of 200 - 250ish Lapwings up in the air circling above the building, a great sight. On our return 10 minutes later they were all settled quietly down on the roof again. I've been seeing these birds here for so long it just seems so natural for them to be there in such an unnatural place.

Large flock of Lapwing well over 50 possibly 70-100, seen from moving vehicle.
On roof of large blue building that I think used to be part of the Seddon Atkinson factory, have vague memories of working there in the 80s.
