For all our blog readers who don't follow our Twitter account - please take a look at this blog and short video by Jamie Wardley of Sand In Your Eye, detailing his recent visit to our sand martin bank. Jamie and his team built the bank for us back in 2012 (thanks guys!) and it has been a huge success ever since. You can find his website with the blog and video here.... http://www.sandsculptureice.co.uk/blog/2014/sand-sculpture/rspb-artificial-sand-bank-revisited-langford-lowfields/
And on the subject of blogs, here is a link to another great piece by Beach Hut volunteer Dave Roberts on his website. Some more great images of our starling roost.... http://www.lincsbirders.org/2014/11/09/more-starlings/
Just to add to Jenny's blog posting last night, I thought I'd draw your attention to the blog of Beach Hut volunteer Dave Roberts, on the Lincsbirders website.
Dave's put some great images of the roost and sunset on there and his blogs always make for a good read.
News just in from Beach Hut volunteer Dave Roberts of 15,000 starlings in the roost tonight! This is already higher than our peak count from last winter and it's only the beginning of November. It's well worth coming to see this spectacle - arrive from about 15.30 and watch from the southern edge of the Cromwell Trail to the south over Phase 2. Do bear in mind though they do sometimes change their roost location, so may be on Phase 1.
Our peak count from two years ago was a whopping 40,000 - perhaps we can beat that this year!?
