A massive local Starling murmuration

A few years ago a Starling murmuration sprung up at Semere Green between Pulham Market and Dickleburgh. Having been absent for the last 3 or 4 years it is back and bigger than ever!

We popped along on Wednesday night to check it out and were delighted and entralled to witness the biggest gathering I've ever seen. An estimate of 50,000 birds congregated, at time turning the sky black. Interestingly there is another much smaller group roosting at Dickleburgh Moor only 1.5 km away. We also got pooped on for our troubles! 

A flock of c60 Golden Plovers also flew high over and a Song Thrush was singing strongly as dusk fell.
