Starlings Provide Wildlife Spectacle at Wigtown

Roosting starlings are providing Wigtown residents and visitors with an amazing wildlife spectacle as dusk approaches on these late autumn nights.

A 'murmuration' of thousands of starlings, which residents say has been increasing in number over the last two or three years, can regularly be seen above the reedbeds near Wigtown Harbour, weaving sometimes startling patterns in the twilight, before bedding down for the night.
