How is the starlings mumurations coming along.from Bassar

  • Hi Bassar,

    Still very unpredictable I'm afraid. Several thousand birds sometimes show up but then they've often been dropping down into the reedbed immediately even on good weather days.

    Best bring a flask of something hot and look forward to the rooks and jackdaws flocking around the trees beyond the car park, and the gull roost on Drayton Lagoon - the starlings are then a bonus if they turn up!
