Yesterday I reported having 63 Pink Footed Geese crossing over from Farleton to Hale and then veering left (South) towards Morecambe, this would have been around the 1345hrs. And it later transpired that Jeff down in Morecambe had approx 60 Pink Feet crossing over Torrisholme (1453hrs) and seen again onwards at Aldcliffe and onward to Sunderland Point.
I thought they may have been the same birds as I had earlier, and possibly they where. But if so it did seem a long time between me seeing them Nr. Hale at 1345hrs and Jeff seeing his at 1453hrs, so did it take them one hour eight minutes to traverse the short distance, seemed a long long time to me. In another post Jeff came up with the possible answer "Perhaps they were stacked by air traffic control" So I could not resist this morning doing a short sketch on the subject.
