On their website, if you select Bird's Eye view then the view stays the same to maximum resolution. If however you select Aerial view it uses images taken at a different time and then flips to the Bird's Eye view at the highest resolution.
I don't know about the relative dates of the images.
Could just be a bug!  //Mike

Subject: [Talk-GB] Bing imagery update? using photo's from late 2011?

I've just noticed an update to Bing imagery in the UK. Area I was looking at was Torbay, Devon. [link]. The updates images are not available at full zoom for some reason, so by zooming all the way in you can see the previous images.

Finding it hard to give a date to the images, but I think for Torbay they were taken in late summer 2011.

I've spotted land changes in images for South London that indicate a recent imagery & update there. Has this happened across the UK?

Apologies is this info has already come up in the list.
