Took this on thursday at Leighton Moss in Lancashire. The starlings fly in from all over the area and perform these beautiful aerial swoops to dis-orientate predators before almost falling as one into the reedbeds to roost.
This was taken before the full flock had arrived but the estimate was that there were about 10,000 starlings in this flock although on the Somerset levels there can be as many as 3 million at once.
