Just remembered odd behaviour of Starlings overhead while I was searching dung for scarabs. Flocks totalling about 400 birds were flying around a circular path over me repeatedly but slowly - moth like - as though catching flying ants except that it is probably too late in the year for them - more likely another unspecified (ie. I don't know !) fly of which there were a lot flying over the moorland in the fine sunny weather. Possibly it was some sort of social togetherness behaviour going into winter feeding regime. Later the Starlings fed among animals in nearby fields.

Up to 15 Hawfinch feeding in Hornbeam behind MOD playing fields. Approach along the river walk as the metal gate in the trees has already flushed them very easily once.
