I took a picture too but i couldn't see anything on my phone because its very old and the lights were very small, anyway I walked on and I never really thought much of it, cause I'm not one to believe in UFOs and the paranormal or any of that stuff. Until I got home, it played on my mind a little and I became a bit confused, because I've been walking this route for the past 7 maybe 8 years and I've never seen a plane fly over that spot, because we're not near any airport and we're just not in the flight path, especially for a plane to be flying as low as this one (UFO) was. Anyway, I went back the next day to see if I could maybe see it again, but I saw nothing, and then the next day I walked the same way, nothing again, after a few days I just gave up not knowing what to think.
But about a month later, I saw it again, but this time the lights were much brighter and bigger and this time the red light was on the opposite side. It looked like it was pulsating and growing. It was much lower to the ground. It was pretty close to me. Not knowing what to do I tried to call my wife Joanne but I couldn't seem to get a signal, so I ran a little, for at least 2 - 3 minutes. I ran along the long road which covers the length of the reservoir, and when I got onto a main road and looked back, nothing was there. I feel like I'm going crazy because I cant really remember much more else except for the smell, this horrible metal kind of smell which I remember smelling in an old iron factory I worked at when I was younger. It was a horrible smell, which seemed to stay with me for the next few hours after, and even my wife said she could smell it off my jacket. Anyway I hope you can post this on your website so I can maybe hear some story's other people might have of the same sort, maybe in the same Birmingham area? Maybe somebody else has being seeing things in the past month? I'd love to know because I hate to feel so alone, like I'm the only one that seen it. Thanks.
Here, I have enclosed a picture from the Internet of the reservoir in the same spot where I saw the object.
