The period of unsettled weather continued today with few visitors making the journey to Ham Wall.
In the dark skies I was forced to switch to black-and-white.
Here is the mandatory picture of the first group of starlings to arrive. They went straight down in the same spot as yesterday.
More birds arrived and started to turn the reeds black.
Despite the poor weather the starlings put on an excellent low level show.
They performed fabulous low level wave routines.
I assume that like the Red Arrows the starlings have both clear sky and low level displays rehearsed and ready to go.
As more birds arrive they spread out across the western heath.
To my surprise the birds then settled in the west side of Waltons Heath just where they landed. No flyover to the east side or on to Loxtons Marsh. I guess the bad weather made bunkering down here a better option.
