Starling murmuration - Middleton Moor

My first visit this year to Middleton Moor. Starling numbers were quite low, I estimated 6-8K birds, but what they lacked in number they certainly made up for with the murmuration. They circled the reed bed for at least 15 to 20 minutes before finally dropping in to roost.
The first birds arrived about 16:30 and they dropped in to roost at about 17:15.
