I think your spot on firecrest. The helicopter they use look the same as the one that was around here. :) At least ive cracked the two helicopter sightings now and what they were.

I`m sure I`ve seen one of those flying over Teesside, it looks like the ASU but doesnt sound like it if you know what I mean, different engine noise

Electricity companies have been known use Twin Squirrels around here (North East)....

I noticed one last year in South Shields. They fly the length of the pylons (slightly higher!) in order to inspect them with a special camera.

It could possibly be this?

Its actually for grants/allowences on your crops and animals, they used to use sat to do the imagry but in Northern Ireland they got wise and used the shaven wool from sheep on frames to claim more ;) .....so now it has all changed.
