Starling Murmurations

 

 
Starling Murmurations are one of nature’s most magnificent sights. Thousands of starlings form sweeping balls before descending to the trees to roost.
The best places to see this natural phenomenon is the Somerset (UK) Wildlife Trust’s Westhay Moor National Nature Reserve, Natural England’s Shapwick Heath National Nature Reserve, and RSPB Ham Wall Reserve, all on the Somerset Levels.
The starlings appear from early fall into February. To find out exactly where the starlings might be found, contact the Avalon Marshes Starling Hotline on 07866 554 142 or email Avalon Marshes at starlings@rspb.org.uk.
