Starling flocks - near you??
« on: November 14, 2013, 06:06:25 pm »
Anyone seen any good murmurations this year? I've been out and seen a few, the best was tonight and was the result of a few days tracking and following the flocks as they gather. It was near Tatton Park, near Knutsford. It wasn't huge like some of the youtube ones, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

It's probably a bit early just yet for the really big flocks to gather.
I've started to see groups of maybe thirty or forty birds round the office. One year by February we had 10,000 roosting in the trees over the road.
Car owners were not happy. The bike shelter has a roof.  ;D
