I had seen on the Cumbria Birding Group facebook page that there was a huge roost of starlings just a few miles away at Southwaite. We just had to go and see for ourselves.
It was certainly the largest murmuration we have seen. This was only part of the flock. Unfortunately tonight they didn't do their aerobatic display as one mass, or high over the trees but you can see the effect from Extras of what it was like to have one of the groups fly over our heads to join the others.
Also in Extras is an early group with a sparrowhawk in pursuit!
