Starlings flocking over the Fen Drayton RSPB reserve in Cambridgeshire. Found out about this on the BBC Autumnwatch site. Not a massive flock, but wonderful to watch against the sunset.

Nice capture - I have the same display from my garden looking over Watermead Park in Leicester every evening - but they do make a lot of noise when they are flocking. Never tried to photograph them as my view is to the east so the sky is dark - dark birds on a dark background probably would not work - but your capture is spot on. Well done.


I'm looking forward to catching some at the North Pier in Blackpool.

Excellent shot!


Thank you, luckily the car park faces into the sunset over the reeds where they flock, so lovely light.


Yep, great light, well captured.

wow, it looks like a giant finger in the sky, omen, spooky,
well captured!


It did look as if they were pointing.
