Almost like a cloud of locusts in some African travel film, far from Northumberland and the surprisingly warm looking sky, just for you Danny.

A stunning shot Danny.
Puts me in mind of Brian Hanrahan's famous quote during the Falklands war,
''I counted them all out,and counted them back in''
But I don't suppose you did that though !!

A fantastic murmuration of Starlings Dan, like the motion blur of the birds against the colour of the sky. I remember seeing many of these displays as a young lad but it now has been some years since i seen one. Its not surprising due to Starlings becoming an endangered species in the UK.
