Lots of birds around today. Canada and greylag geese everywhere, amongst which where 11 Goosander and a female Goldeneye (is this uncommon)? Quite a variety of waders with 31 Curlew, one with a set of colour rings, 2 Green Sandpipers and 23 Lapwing. A lone Buzzard was patrolling the waders, before a starling murmaration began to form. By around 4pm there where about 450 swirling around, quite a spectacle. A Sparrowhawk tried to take advantage of this bonanza.
Other birds included: 5 Cormorant, 20 Wigeon, a large roost of mixed winter thrushes, 2 Little Grebe, 1 Grey Heron and 3 Little Egret.
I will post a video of the murmaration and the details of the Curlew soon.
