Sand Martin Roost at Tinker Joe's Flash in Leigh

Well I never, you learn something new every day! I didn't know that Sand Martins flocked together in murmurations like Starlings do before coming in to roost.  Well here's the evidence that they do, even if the video is a little crummy. Keep watching, the birds do eventually appear!

Thanks to Dave Wilson stalwart member of Leigh Ornithological Society for alerting us all to this local wildlife spectacle.  The voices you can hear are of Brain Fawcett, George Pike and Colin Davies as well as my own dulcet tones.
