Flocking About

I occasionally lift my head up from my scope whilst I'm gull watching at Shawell A5 lagoons and a few weeks ago I noticed a flock of Starlings flying above the distant landfill site. Steve Nicholls and I spotted a pre-roost flock last weekend, which has now built up to about 4000 birds. They are roosting between the lagoons and the landfill site. This evening they put on quite a show, as they wheeled around creating really some impressive patterns.
