Exe Starlings

Early days yet, but numbers of starlings are steadily building over the Exe. There seem to be several murmuration sites (River Exe, Cullompton, River Otter etc) that they choose between over the course of a winter, so it's nice to see them here again.

I've no idea how you count so many birds, but these were seen over Topsham, towards the M5 this evening.
