Starling Roost

Report .Geoff Barter.26th October 2010

"A bit quiet but last evening good views of a Water rail at the rear of the pool in the reed edge just along the path from the Massala also Cetti s singing in the area and a female Teal skulking tonight Water rail squealing but not seen & a Snipe flushed however the highlight on both nights starting at about 17.45 was the Starling roost well worth getting down to see . Good birding "

Thanks for the report Geoff.

I did notice the last late evening I was down Par the Starling roost. Not quite up to Slimbridge standard but a lot closer to home.
Enjoy your visit.


  1. Any chance of an estimate of numbers in the Starling roost?

  2. c 1500 on Monday night but last night hardly any 200 max

  3. C 1500 must have been quite impressive Geoff. It would have been nearer the low figure I saw.
