It is around this time of year that I usually manage to see the flocking Starlings as I reported here from a trip I took to Slimbridge last year.
This natural spectacle is always stunning to watch and with lots of birds and lots of flocks it is really exciting as they wheel around the skies.
So it was with great pleasure that I was able to see it from my living room window last weekend, albeit it on a smaller scale. We had a couple of flocks of about two hundred birds each, flying and wheeling overhead. Truly beautiful, in a bijou sort of way.
Here is an image that I took a few years ago, also from Slimbridge that I was quite pleased with.
It would great to hear from you if you have seen any such flocks this year and whereabouts
