Starlings over Gretna
This is part of the large group of starlings at Gretna, numbering over 1 million, that congregate every evening at sunset during the winter months to perform an elaborate aerobatic display before roosting in nearby conifer plantations. Viewed from the B7076 near Gretna where many people had gathered to witness one of the most stunning spectacles in nature.
