Starlings dancing over Blackpool tower by 

Taken with a Canon 50D, Sigma 17-70 lens at 53mm, F5.6, shutter speed 1/60 second, ISO100, tweaked in Photoshop

Last night I experienced a wildlife spectacular I have always wanted to see. This shot is of thousands of Starling dancing in the sky before they settled down to roost in the reedbeds at Marton Mere (Blackpool, Lancashire). There were many more starlings than this at the end of the night maybe 40,000!!! Blackpool Tower is in the distance.
