  1. a great shot Jude especially with the extended reflection of the flock

      There are thousands doing a flypast this morning, but they are not easy to photograph.

    Wonderfully atmospheric. And so pleasing to see such a host of starlings. We have about 20 tops in our vicinity.

    1. Heyjude says:

      There are thousands here that come to feed in the fields, amazing to watch them take off, but they fly so low that it is difficult to capture the whole effect.

    You’ve captured the magic of that time of evening. For me it has always been a time when it’s easier to feel in touch with nature – maybe it’s partly a response to the light and the darkening sky, combined with the quieting of human activities. Love it!

    What a lovely photo

    I really like this shot, Jude. I remember seeing countless thousands of birds circling (the old damaged) Brighton Pier at dusk, ready to roost. Of course, I didn’t have a camera with me!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    Great sky and light and I also like how you got the reflection of the birds in the glass.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, that was a stroke of luck. Trying to get a decent photo is difficult as they just suddenly appear so you don’t have time to focus!

    I loved your photo. Here we enjoy watching hundreds of crows gathering for the night. For us starlings are invasive and don’t bring such joy..

    1. Heyjude says:

      There are thousands here this year, feeding in the field opposite our house and flying around – they are amazing to watch in flight, but they do make a mess on the car and windows!

  8. A great photo, for me the beautiful sky and the curve of the hill really make it work.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I agree, the sky was magical.
