Thousands of Starlings

video

 This afternoon we went over to Otmoor with Ben from bensbirdsandbeastlybugs.blogspot.com  to have another go at watching the Starling murmurations. The weather was windy, cold and very overcast so we were not expecting too much.
Firstly small groups of about 20 - 50 Starlings flew over then the whole sky seemed to be covered in black dots.
I don't know how people begin to estimate how many there are, but some body had written 30,000 on the notice board.

Once the Starlings settled down, the reeds turned black with Starlings, the noise was overwhelming
