Apart from two starlings prospecting the nest box next door,we haven't had many sightings in our garden this winter. Recently,just at dusk, several small flocks have been gathering in the sky above the house wheeling and turning, like a mini murmuration. Eventually they join up,and with a large whoosh they all descend into our large holly tree chattering away. Then silence falls. We never see or hear them leave in the morning.They must be early risers!
