Nearly Town Centre St Helens Rd Leigh

Bridge Inspectors at our place have taken a photo of a used Dippers nest under a bridge on what I think is Pennington Brook they didn't see any birds in the area but this might be where the Dippers that were seen at Pennington Flash came from ?

About 0745 this morning, Scott, I counted 40 just in my line of sight on Tesco's car park. Hopefully when the squalls kicked off they were able to retreat under the trolley shelters!
