Thanks to Matthew Birkin for the following:-
From the layby on the A54, just north of Three Shires Head we had a Starling flock which must have been at least 1000 birds and when they flew across the road it shocked a few drivers. I’m presuming this is in Cheshire, but it was an impressive sight. Also 20+ Fieldfare from the road north of Longnor village.
