At least ten dead birds were discovered in a garden the same day a huge UFO was sighted hovering over Salterbeck, south of Workington, Cumbria in Great Britain.
The witness, Calum Sherwood, said the object seemed to be just floating in the clouds. He took a picture of the object but experts aren't sure if the object was extraterrestrial or not. Some believe it could be a rare cloud formation, while others believe it could be ice crystals from a jet engine. They say the craft looks like a it's just a persisting circular contrail.
Coincidentally, Sharon Larkin, a friend of Mr. Sherwood, found ten dead birds in her garden that same day reports the Daily Mail.
Ms. Larkin claims that dead birds are associated with sightings of unidentified flying objects and that the area is close to Sellafield nuclear power plant which is a hotspot for unusual activity.
Ms. Larkin said, "There is something about this picture. The line around the edge of the [craft] is very clear and very specific. I've shown it to other people and some people have suggested it might be an unusual cloud formation, but the perimeter is very clear and I don't think that's the case.
"What's really strange is that the day Calum took this picture I discovered about ten dead birds in my garden, the back and the front. They were sparrows and blackbirds. It could just be a co-incidence but the discovery of dead birds is associated with sightings of [unidentified flying objects]."
Is it just coincidence that the day ten dead birds are discovered is the same day a large flying craft is seen in the air? If birds can get into the engines of airplanes as they fly is it so surprising that birds could get in the way of flying objects and thus being killed? Maybe the UFO ejects a chemical that kills the birds. Or the discovery of the birds could mean nothing at all. But it is surprising that the birds were found in the garden of a friend of the witness. People could go on to say that the aliens, if there were any aliens involved, were warning the witness not to say anything about the sighting.
The story sounds like the basis of a good science fiction story yet to be written.
Keep those eyes to the skies because something could be flying above.
