Stunning starling flock over Bodmin
A stunning starling flock over Bodmin was our reward as we got back to the car park after a wonderful New Years Eve walk to Showery tor and Brown Willy. We headed up there to fly the childrens kites and had a lot of fun. But the real reward was seeing what was over a million starlings flying in to the fields in some huge flocks that stretched to the horizon. After settling the sheep in the field stirred them up and we were rewarded with the stunning sight of the flock twisting and turning as it re-settled. The picture only captures a small fraction of the flock which had many people stopping to watch.
The walk is an easy one and a description of it can be found on this link.
