Nature's Calendar - A cloud of starlings

Dipping and diving, making swirling patterns in the sky, coming in to roost then taking off again. The gathering together of a large flock of starlings is something I never expected to see just outside my back door. As I alighted from the bus I could see them and as usual my camera was at the ready would I make it to the lane before they disappeared? Yes of course I did

And finally the sun setting in the west.

All this from the lane at the bottom of my garden, what a lovely place to live.

Amazing swirls and swoops of starlings! Glad I'm not standing underneath them though - I once parked under a flock that size roosting nearby ... not a pretty sight!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
