Starlings are coming..

Driving cross-country from Taunton to Wells late yesterday afternoon I saw my first large gathering of starlings heading for the Avalon Marshes around dusk. Not quite the biblical murmurations that we enjoy mid winter, however it’s a start, and reassuring that the world is still turning.

Hopefully we will have scenes like this to look forward to.

There are still a few places left on our Starling Spectaculars weekend breaks over the winter, and do ask about our special birding day trips if you do not need overnight accommodation.
