taken 8 years ago, near to Aberystwyth, Ceredigion/Sir Ceredigion, Great Britain

Starlings over Aberystwyth Pier
Starlings over Aberystwyth Pier
Aberystwyth Pier is the site of one of the best known Starling murmurations, as during the winter large groups fly in at dusk from the surrounding countryside to roost under the pier, with the total number of birds in the 10,000s.

Here the sky is filled with birds - soon after this they started to settle on the metal under-structure of the pier and the sky cleared.
