Birds are commonly seen and the ATIS often reports that pilots should use caution due to this.

Runways: 05L/23R – 10000ft, 05R/23L – 10007ft. Pilots should note that only 05R/23L has grooved asphalt, so on 05L/23R standing water may be present, therefore a danger of aquaplaning is increased.

    The taxiway nomeclature can cause great confusion as taxi way designations seem to change randomly. A lot of former taxiway markings can still be seen and some of the current markings are very difficult to see when wet, which is a frequent occurence in the North West of England.
    There seems to be no published guidance as to when both runways will be open.
    Rwy 23R has a pronounced hump at he usual touchdown point.
    Windshear also appears to be quite comon.
