Midwinter Murmuration

This December I’ve enjoyed two of the most intense mumurations I have ever watched. Each night the starling spectacular plays out a different performance – sometimes with a sunset backdrop, other times the waterfall whoosh as the birds fall into the reeds. But last night and last week, with groups from PTES we placed ourselves in the perfect position to experience the intensity of the experience – a million starling descending all around us into the reed bed.

Few more words are needed!

If you haven’t experienced the murmuration, I would really encourage you to visit one of the UK’s many murmuration ┬ásites. On the Somerset Levels, the starling numbers will peak at 3 million if we have more cold weather…

Over the winter I have a number of starling & wildlife watching events on the Somerset Levels – if you fancy joining me (group or bespoke 1-2-1) ┬ádo get in touch.

2015 Starling & Somerset Levels Group Dates – 15th Jan, 29th Jan, 12th Feb, 20th Feb

Or if you would like to go independently, pleased do email me and I will let you know the latest update on location, timing etc.
