I was travelling home from work and often choose the peat moors between Glastonbury and Burnham, enjoying some of my favourite Somerset scenery and wildlife, also in the hope I might catch the murmeration and on Monday and Tuesday I was lucky to see it.
Just to explain Starling murmurations are where thousands of birds flock together, swirling in the sky at dawn and dusk, hundreds of thousands of starlings darken the sky with these incredible, acrobatic displays on their way to or from their roosts in the reed beds on the moors. The murmerations on the peat moors here in Somerset have been estimated in the past to be over 3 million starlings and this year they seem to be incredibly large.
So I hope you like this series as I try to show your this incredible sight.
They start to move around in formation dancing in the sky like massive shoals of fish.

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
