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  Access to Titchmarsh via the track from the small car park at Aldwincle TL006814 and at Summer Leys view from main car park SP885634.
