More than justa flock by the looks Ron a sight to see and a sound to hear. I'd do something about cleaning the sensor though?

We see pictures of these flocks of starlings a lot but I've not thought about the sound they make before. It must be deafening going on the noise the smaller flock in my garden make at feeding/bathing time.

Fantastic - we went there once to see this and it didn't happen (wrong sort of weather!!). I love the noise too - all that chattering. Brilliant capture.

An amazing sight as ever superbly captured. I must get out to the North Pier on a calmer day to get the murmuration there.
