On Sat. 4th at 1545 Bert and I arrived at the parking area between the East Chevington ponds to watch the hundreds of starlings swirling around before roosting in the reeds, the murmuration.  I could hear them before I spotted them but by 1645 all was still and silent.   It was a wonderful spectacle added to because of the beautiful sunset.  The image doesn't do it justice but I've only got a wee camera.  It really is a lovely experience, not as spectacular as those shown on T.V. but it is ours.

  1. Mora, it's good to know that there are still some decent sized murmurations of Starlings around. On our patch we see far fewer of these birds than we used to. And what a fantastic sky!
