Starlings and Lapwings

Starlings and Lapwings

Observation - Starlings and Lapwings. Description: A mixed flock. Or, more accurately, two flocks in formation. The Starlings tended to keep together, as did the Lapwings. There were a couple of Buzzards and four Red Kites in the immediate vicinity; it occured to me that this might be mutual protection

There were a couple of Buzzards and four Red Kites in the immediate vicinity; it occured to me that this might be mutual protection, though the raptors weren't really much of a threat.
