Final Levels visit for 2017

Starlings

ON a cold windy Sunday a few weeks ago I popped down to Ham Wall to view the spectacle of the starlings.  The numbers are high (and will get higher) and with the sunset it was a great experience.








What's that bird?

Seen on King Sedge Moor, Somerset in the distance amongst plovers - is it a sandpiper (the top right bird)?
