Murmuration of Starlings at Gretna by 

A murmuration of starlings ~ This dusk ritual appears to be a collective decision of trying to decide where to roost for the night. At a certain point they swirl downwards towards their chosen roost, and the display is over for another day .. Pure magic!

    Just a few birds then. Such a nice name for this flocking as opposed to a “murder” of ravens

  • ~ I agree Philip! A hundred thousand, and more, beating hearts ~ soaring and swirling in complete unison, as one! Heart wrenching to watch..

    Great shot! I never have the camera when I see this. Quite a spectacle!

  • ~ Thank you Marriet .. Always carry your camera.. This was a bit tricky with light levels being so low, as darkness was falling ..

    Wonderful, a little scary, but beautiful too. Congrats on your hp feature.

  • ~ Thank you Lynn .. You should have heard the near silent pitter patter of .. err .. bird poo when they flew overhead. I got hit several times .. Some say that’s lucky! Hmmm!
