Witness Account: I was out walking on Sunday 27th August 2018. It was around 7pm. We entered Millbank woods at Kildale. ( Millbank wood is a peaceful wood a short walk from Stamner village. You can either follow the bridle path or go across the fields to get up to the wood which lies along the top of the hill. It is part of the Stamner Park walking route.) The path in the woods in parts is a valley, with sides that slope upward and the path is at the bottom. We walked down the path and then on down to the waterfall. I felt as if I was being watched once I was down at the waterfall. It was a horrible eerie feeling. I walk all over day and night and this feeling has never happened before. I was with my husband and we wandered around the base of the waterfall for a short time to give the dog a drink then we both sat down. As we were sitting there we heard a growl and the sounds of something on the path above us as if something had walked up above. My dog also heard the noises on the path and looked up.
A large stick came down at us. We brushed this off at first as it is a wood but then something else came down on to us. We sat there for a few minutes I felt very uneasy the whole time as though whatever it was up there was watching us, my husband also felt the same. We climbed up to the top of the path the same way we had come down and my dog immediately picked up a scent so I knew something had recently walked above us, within minutes. I live in a rural area so my dog is use to picking up the scents of animals. He picks up scents of non human smells and I can tell by his behaviour. I can’t describe the eerie feeling of being watched from the trees. I wanted to leave immediately the feeling was that bad. We continued along the path. We heard another snarl and growl from in the trees. This was not a dog snarl nor was it people in the trees playing a prank, the area is very thick sloping down with trees, bushes and overgrowth.
