Starlings At White Slea.


Recommended Posts

Further to my post regarding jackdaws I thought I might recount a couple of experiences a few days apart when I moored at White Slea near Hickling.

Just before dusk there was a whooshing noise behind me as I was sitting there having a dabble with my fishing rod. Hundreds of starlings in a long line swooped at around 12ft above the river and began a murmuration in the field opposite. I only saw a small piece of the murmuration as the trees obscured it and the starlings were quite low but it was interesting as I had never seen one in real life before.

Has anybody experienced this at this spot and is it a regular occurrence?
