Another fantastic photograph.Another SCOOP for wiganworld. I bet there aren't many of these photographs around. It appears it did fly. I would love to learn more about it

My Grandad reckons that photos of the flying flea are very rare. I can get more information for you off my Grandad but will only be able to get back to you in several weeks
