    I have just seen 97 of them in a long curved line, each one perched on the semi-circular top of a railing round the lake. And on the grass below there were hundreds. It reminded me of the Hitchcock film. And of the Tom Lehrer song.

    I remember doing a temp. office job in September when I was a student. It was in Thamesmead and all the starlings in London seemed to have gathered there ready to set off.

    It only took me a few moments and there was nothing to disturb them.

    Rehearsing for a remake of 'The Birds'?
    Would love to see the flight-'murmuration'-of starlings mentioned on some TV item recently!

    Me too.
    The red squirrels will appear with dawn. Repeat. The red squirrels will appear with dawn. Be ready.
