Ashton Keynes / Cleveland: Between 1545 and 1615 a steady movement of small to large flocks of starlings over the village all flying directly east towards Cleveland Lakes.  Most flocks were a few hundred strong but around 1600 there were three flocks exceeding 1000 birds.  In total I counted approximately 12,000 birds all moving from west to east.  I imagine there is probably a large roost, perhaps in the reed bed near the Reed Hide.     John Grearson
