If you look very closely in the shrubbery - there's a duck :-)

Is that the top of Bryn Police Station sticking up from behind the trees ?

Can only see it's beak, Dave, a close up would be nice !

Hi Dave. I can see a "rubber" but not a duck :0) I'll carry on looking.

It's a excellent and very clear photo, you could almost reach out and touch those turbines as they seem that close. Probably on a wild goose chase, but I would hazard a guess on it being taken from the top of St Wilfred's Church, Standish?

Jamie's got it - and Mick too I think although there's no Polcie Station at Bryn, I'm sure he means Bryn Gates / Bamfurlong.

The photo was taken from the path that joins Three Sisters and Viridor Wood and comes out onto Bolton Road opposite Riding Lane.

How many other local landmarks can you spot in there?

Wouldn't have thought it was taken from there Dave, mind you I have never walked around that entire area only around the lake where the car park's are, I shall have to go and have a wander round and look at the views.

Dave, I`ve looked closely in the shrubbery & can`t see a Canada goose either !

Dave, Blow the photo up & see if all the blades on the windmills are intact. There may have been a UFO in the area !
