STARLING SPIROGRAPH

Newer Older

Time was when the only visitors flocking to Gretna Green were eloping English couples.

Now the Scottish border village is getting arrivals by the million - and most of them come by air.

Swooping and swirling across the dimly lit sky, they could almost be mistaken for an approaching storm cloud.

In this dazzling aerial display, over a million starlings wheel and dive across the setting sun, creating elaborate patterns and drawing the admiring gaze of fascinated onlookers.

MY FRIEND AND I DROVE 100 MILES FOR THIS AND IT IS AWESOME!
