Buckenham Rookery - A CorVideo
Please note: this video is best viewed in enlarged mode
In late December Ragged Ramblers visited the largest rookery in Britain (estimated to number up to 80,000 in total), situated at Buckenham, Norfolk, located just to the south of Strumpshaw. It was cold and bleak, but the site of thousand upon thousands of rooks swirling in the sky was a compelling site (see video).
We also notice that the online directions to this wonderful site are very hard to find. As a result, we have added a location tag to this post, and have also added it to our Google map:

So long as people are sensitive to the needs of this corvid community, this shouldn't be kept a secret. Best witnessed in winter, wrap up well and make your way there. It does have to be seen to be believed!
Huzzah for the corvids!
