Plenty of gulls along Colwyn Bay beach this evening including two adult Mediterranean Gulls and a first winter on rocks further towards Llanddulas. At least five Lesser black backed Gulls and three 'argentatus' Herring gulls. Definitely a build up of Common Gulls with several hundred present. Highlight of the evening though was the amazing spectacle of upwards of 10000+ Starling coming into roost at Colwyn Bay Pier. The advantage of watching here over other local murmuration sites is that you can get right under the action and watch the birds come in to roost on the old pier; a cacophony of noise and movement. A cracking female Peregrine came in for the kill a few times but the massive flock evaded its swoops each time - well worth a visit from some 30 minutes before dusk.
