The final one in this short series, hope people have enjoyed it.
Last week I visited the National Nature Reserve at Shapwick Heath here on the Somerset levels. We are lucky that every year in the winter months thousands and sometimes millions of Starlings come here to roost at night in the reed-beds. It's an incredible sight and sound to watch and hear them fly over, sometimes in fantastic formations swooping around almost like massive shoals of fish in the sea, other times almost turning the sky black because of the sheer numbers. The tragic thing is this event is becoming smaller every year as Starlings have recently been placed on the global red list of endangered species.

Unfortunately I don't seem to have as much time as I would like at the present to get on AM3, but I am putting shots on from time to time and will try to visit others when I can.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
