Starling Murmuration

I traveled to the village of Woodford just across the border in Northamptonshire to witness one of natures must see events a Starling Murmuration.
Thousands of the tiny birds created a stunning sight as they flocked together above the village creating a mass that looked like one large flowing, living cloud reminiscent of a shoal of fish in the sea their movements where hypnotic in their fluidity.
Look out for red kites on the edges of the flock circling like sharks ready to grab any unfortunate starling who gets separated from the mass.
