WHERE CAN I SEE STARLING MURMURATIONS?

Wait patiently until dusk at RSPB Blacktoft Sands and you may be rewarded with the sight of a starling murmuration over the reedbeds. A short hop over the Humber Bridge takes you to Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust's Far Ings Nature Reserve where they have had some impressive starling mumurations in recent years.
