Just north of the Wildfowl Trust at Slimbridge there are reed beds which attract spectacular flocks throughout the winter. Numbers have halved since the eighties though. A local uni has just started a survey into the decline of the Starling and hope to come up with some answers so that they may be protected.
Can you actually view them at dusk if you walk along the canal or is it too far from there?
Thanks for that will put on the list for somewhere to go this winter.
I just find them truly mesmerising.
Even better put to music...... fascinating to see the ? falcon/sparrow hawk in amongst them.
