This is at Shapwick Heath where one million starlings come to roost. I was too early to see their full 'murmurations' as I think they call it, but to see and hear them preparing to roost was amazing..
Yes Ian, it's a tip the couple next to me must have wished they'd taken...I was lucky this time!

Hi Jutta, many thanks for all your kind comments.
Best wishes, Rosa.
I have the spectacle of the sky once witnessed, clouds of starlings, congratulations on this recording, many greetings to you L&F
Wonderful scene & capture, except I don't like starlings very much! :-) Like
Best wishes, Marlene
Thank you very much for L&F Klaus. It really is a wonderful spectacle to see. Nature at its best. Best wishes to you, Rosa.
Thank you Marlene. I wonder if any other birds do this! I wish I could have stayed longer to see the patterns they make just before settling. Best wishes, Rosa.
Well seen and taken, Rosa. I like it. Greetings, Ildikó
Ildikó A., they moved so fast that it was difficult to get a good picture, so I thought I would concentrate on the sky!
Best wishes to you, Rosa.
The noise is almost as impressive as the incredible movements in the sky. About ten years ago a flock decided to roost in the hedges behind my place, even with the windows shut I could hear them. They hav'nt returned, which is such a shame.
I was a little too early to see their best movements. I wish I could have stayed longer. To see them outside your house must have been fantastic, it's a noise I wouldn't mind!
Great shot Rosa, I tried to get to to the starlings last year but got there too late as we parked too far away,all the action had happened by the time we got there!! Will have to try again.LIKE
Best wishes Pam
Thank you Pam. It is a wonderful sight. I shall definitely go again. I was surprised to see so many people there! Best wishes, Rosa.
Wunderschön Like Liebe Grüße Eva
