A Murmuration of Starlings

This afternoon there were close to 200 birds in the park:

Blackbird (3)
Carrion Crow (3)
Feral Pigeon (1)
Great Tit (3)
House Sparrow (15)
Magpie (2)
Redwing (c40) - yes, really, circa forty Redwing in the west field!
Robin (1)
Starling (>110) - competing with the Redwing for food.
Woodpigeon (3)

Sorry for the poor quality, but here's a photo of about 150 Starlings and Redwing.

How many will you see during Saturday's Birdwatch?

  1. Impressive, must remember my binoculars for tomorrow.

    Most likely were red wing the other week then?
