It is uncertain whether the 55 Whoopers on New Moor are part of, or additional to the 144, but a large number of Whoopers arrived on Idlebank during the late afternoon which appeared to come off the SE of the Moors. If anyone can shed any further light upon this any info would be gratefully received.
