I like the effect of the long exposure Danny. Adds to the feel of just one, huge entity filling the sky.

You may fool everyone else Danny,but not me.
It is not starlings at all,but a rusty bit of sheet metal !!
A splendid bit of the stuff here in its full hydrated iron oxide form.
Peeling of the rust is not evident yet,as the iron hydroxide crystal have yet to form.
Starlings indeed ?
That's for the birds,that one !!

You can fool some of the people some of the time but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

I also think these quotations are a lot of nonsense Danny.
The one about, ''a fool and his money are easily parted'', is a prime example.
You will need a crow bar to prise open my wallet !!
