Starlings flocking and coming into roost at Moore Nature Reserve, Warrington, Cheshire. Filmed by Stewart while walking the dog in November.
Most of the starlings were coming in from the east along the reserve from the direction of Runcorn and joining the main flock. The birds were coming in low in a steady trickle. When they eventually started to drop from the sky and pour into the reed beds a sparrowhawk turned up and waited perched on the ground between two banks of reeds.
We decided to leave before the sparrowhawk got a meal. The aerial display was well worth watching and is always an amazing sight.
