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.
