I decided to post it where it is as it was low enough in my opinion, as so unusual for here, to warrant going in NW section. Also posts in UK Heads Up, Movements & OTT section covering its route through Lakes and in Scotland, so with hindsight I should have posted to there. Tracked over Blackpool Apt (incl within this subforum) and was over Fleetwood @ 7000ft approx descending (1133L).
Cheers

I think it was right for this to be posted in North West section as it was indeed OTT North West, it was low and rare to see.
