Starling murmurations

A number of people have been in touch to ask about the best place to see Starling murmurations in Northamptonshire. At present there appears to be only two sites – Titchmarsh LNR at Thrapston Gravel Pits, where one is currently building, and Summer Leys LNR, which produced a huge, swirling mass yesterday evening.  Simon Hales’ video, below, captures the Titchmarsh birds nicely and the Summer Leys flock, videoed by Matt Hazleton, can be viewed at http://bit.ly/1HmtQYo  Access to Titchmarsh via the track from the small car park at Aldwincle TL006814 and at Summer Leys view from main car park SP885634.
