50/365 – And others. Starlings, sunset and photo’s from our wander around Blackpool.
There is just nothing quite as spectacular as watching the Starlings roosting at sunset. In a photograph it is impossible to get a real sense of what it is like. You cannot see the sheer amount of birds unless you witness them for yourself, there are thousands of them.
It really is magical to watch and the display lasts for about 15 minutes. They dance, swoop and swirl in clouds. Like moving ink spots the sky, twisting and turning in tune with one another. Eventually little by little they head underneath the pier for the night.
If you can find out where there are Starlings roosting where you live I urge you to go at sunset and watch this amazing display of beauty.
Today we went into town to watch the birds, but as we wandered around of course I took some other photographs, it is a given, so here they are.
