5000+ Srarlings at Par

Report. Andrew Carey. 26th November 2010

"Just a quick report from today down at the pool. At 12 noon there were 2 Barnacle Geese present, (photo to follow) and then around 3.00pm the immature swallow was skimming all over the pool, taking (I presume) insects from the surface. Only a single tufted duck present today, and Roger found a male shoveller duck which went to roost under the bushes on the island. We were then treated to a large group of starlings (both Roger and I estimate 5,000 + biirds) coming into roost."

Thanks for the report Andrew.
That must have been an impressive roost.
