Dramatic finale to the evening's murmuration.

I captured this video clip of Starlings at Brighouse this evening, many others had just gone down:

Other observations of the day included: 7 - 8 Meadow Pipits beside Ringby Lane, Ploughcroft.
13 Common Gulls included 3 juveniles at Ploughcroft
Herring gulls among the crows on Swalesmoor, Ploughcroft
Great Spotted Woodpecker drumming in Shibden Valley despite light snow falling.
Mistle Thrush and 2 Goldfinches in Bradford Old Rd. Claremount.

Awesome footage Steve! What a beautiful 'ball of birds'. Wonderful to see them 'funneling' down into the holly trees to roost.
