Starling Murmuration and Sparrowhawk

The Starling murmuration at Thrapston Gravel Pits’ Titchmarsh Reserve continues to attract attention – not just from us birders but from predators, too. Alan Coles captured this Sparrowhawk on the edge of the flock, having a go, this evening.

One recent estimate has put the total of Starlings roosting in the reedbed at between fifteen and twenty thousand! To view, park in the Aldwincle car park, walk down the track to the gate, turn right and walk to the second hide.
