Nature Group Member, Annette Beardsley, led a field trip to Ham Wall in Somerset on January 8th hoping to witness the large-scale Starling Murmuration there. Despite the poor weather forecast for the day, 5 members met up after lunch to explore the area prior to the evening roost.
Annette reports that 'we were advised that the starlings were on the move and likely to roost across the road at Shapwick Heath so we relocated and were rewarded with a superb display. Conditions for photography were far from ideal but we all enjoyed the amazing spectacle.'
Many thanks Annette for leading this outing
