Starling Spectaculars 2018

29/10/2018 0 By wildfeed

Every autumn starling numbers in the UK are bolstered by hundreds of thousands of birds migrating here from Northern Europe, Russia and the Ukraine to escape harsh winter weather. As they come in to roost at dusk they gather in huge flocks creating spectacular ‘sky art’ –  a natural wonder of the season.  On this edition of Nature’s Voice Jane Markham meets the RSPB’s Annabel Rushton who looks forward to their arrival at the Leighton Moss reserve in Lancashire and to the RSPB’s Martin Fowlie, a keen naturalist, to find out more about why and how they create these breathtaking murmurations.
