Starling Roost

    Newer Older

    This is one of the clouds of Starlings that were surrounding me on the Somerset Levels during a recent visit. The million or so birds roost overnight in the reed beds. If you have never seen this awesome Winter roost it's worth the trip where ever you live.
    I just kept my finger on the shutter button and I'm amazed at the shapes I have captured as the flocks constantly change shape in a slow, fluid motion.

      looks like a 'rock on' hand gesture or a bunny or a boxer falling down
