On our way back from Keswick on Friday Maria and I stopped off to see if we could find where the starlings were roosting this year. After driving around previous locations, we finally saw them just behind Springfield School.
Today Maria and I returned to see their whole display. As we were waiting some amazing flocks of geese flew overhead in formation.
Apologies for not having too much time to do more of a write-up, but I thought you may like to enjoy the photos. This year while there were still quite a few thousand birds, for most of the time they flew in two or three large groups. However, for much of the time we were right underneath as they flew overhead.
And as you can see in this photo below, we were just metres from the hedgerow where many of them were roosting for the night, an incredible experience.
