The starlings of Street

Dramatic and beautiful pictures of massed starlings at Westhay appeared in the Guardian and the Daily Telegraph last week.

A happened upon one aerobatic team yesterday while driving home near the Peat Moor Centre (as was), and this evening my son and I went to look for them again.

Their glory days are over for this winter, but we did catch some lovely formation flying. Strangely, the Westhay Moor wild life sanctuary was not the place to look for them; the people who came to the Westhay Moor car park were, like us, disappointed in the numbers of birds.. We shall make another expedition in November, when they are expected in their millions again.

Here is some of the video we took:
