We drove an hour and a half to watch the starling spectacle yesterday evening at Shapwick Heath.
Flocks a thousand strong joined together to make one massive flock that swooped and wheeled about the sky before disappearing to roost in the trees.
It was a quiet, wild place and all we could hear was the sound of thousands and thousands of wings beating the air.
It was a magical sight.
That probably doesn't show up too well on video, but ya gotta try!
This fellow seemed to be waiting for the show to begin too.
As the sun set, the birds disappeared and so did we along with all the other daft folk who drove into the middle of nowhere to watch a bunch of birds!
We did stop off on the way to see the starlings to make a cup of tea and eat a piece of my mums fruit cake and there was just enough time for a declaration of love.
Because it's important to declare it, isn't it?
