Firstly, We hope you had a good Christmas and New Year despite the 'Tier' stages! We made the most of it as most people did.
a HUGE Thank You to those that have sent in Information for the Murmuration Map this season, it has been extremely helpful.
Although a lot of the RSPB reserves are not being included on the Map this winter due to Covid restrictions and the risk of overcrowding, we are hugely grateful for your information and we are storing it in our database so we can keep a record of each location to re-add to the Map once the season is over.
On the Facebook Group we are still on Post Approval for the moment as we will continue with the RSPB wishes and will not be approving posts from a lot of the RSPB sites just incase we contribute to the numbers attending during the tier 3 & 4 restrictions.
Although updates for the Murmuration Map have been slow this winter it is good to see that a lot of new, smaller roosts are being reported. Hopefully being reported after we asked for people to Stay Local and Search Starlings.
We shall continue to monitor the 'Tier' situation but it is looking very likely that we will continue to NOT update a lot of the RSPB locations this season.
Thank you again for your continued support and here it to a much more relaxed and 'free' 2021/22 season,
Glenn & Sarah.
