Starlings

I was coming home from work yesterday, and stopped to watch a large flock of starlings. I'm not sure what was attracting them to land, but there were so many, and so noisy! It was quite windy, so there's a lot of wind noise too - but in real life, the starlings were louder. Several times they all flew up and landed again nearby - I'm not sure what startled them. Once it was me, but I think perhaps it was also the seagulls and magpies.

  1. How cool! Isn't that what they call a murmuration? You got so close - or rather, they got so close to you. What an opportune time to have your camera ready.
