RSPB Ham Wall (near Glastonbury)

I think it was Autumn Watch (BBC 2) where Clare got the idea we should see a dusk sky shadowed with Starlings coming to roost. We have a suitable roost-site at Ham Wall about 7 miles from us (a mile south of Meare which is three miles west of Glastonbury). So on the way to the shops this lunchtime we dropped by to investigate. Here's Clare checking out a possible viewing location.

The sign below is where to call. My sister pointed out there might be environmental hazards to a million birds flying above one. I foresee a "Birds" scenario in which case I will arrange for Clare's body to come between me and their ravening beaks. Should buy a little time :-)

And here are some pictures of the landscape.
