Our Starlings return to our farm year after year and spend all of the winter months with us. This particular group hang out with us all day doing their thing until finally heading to Bodmin Moor every evening to roost and sometimes join other flocks to create amazing murmurations. The wonderful chitter chatter noise they make is just awesome and they give me that lovely warm feeling of just being at home. I am often known to disappear and can usually be found sitting right in the middle of the flock watching and learning from them while they communicate with one another and when no one is looking feed from the silage store. I have a particular infatuation with the magnificent shapes they make when taking off and landing and where their feet and wings are positioned.
