The Gathering

By bytheedge
Each night on Otmoor bird reserve during the winter the starlings gather, perform a wonderful aerial display and then descend into the reed beds to roost.

Current estimate is between 30,000 and 40,000 birds.

The sky was darker than I'd of liked and unfortunately it is not possible to photography the spectacle with the sun behind the birds.
