Was treated to a spectacular display last night at sunset on Brighton seafront. I was about to give up waiting for the starlings to arrive, when they suddenly pitched up!

Enjoy - I certainly did, albeit video captures it better;

Wow, a great series of images. I've never seen a murmuration, went to a local RSPB reserve (Old Moor) last weekend and the staff reliably informed me that there would be a murmuration that evening, but nothing whatsoever occurred!

I'm just a wee bit jealous that you can see this in your locality Andy.

4 and 5 are my favourites but what the heck are they doing in 7?
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

I wonder that - they quite often make a sudden dive almost into the sea and then come back up again!

Thanks all for the comments; I am fortunate to be near to where this natural phenomenon happens!

They're really good!
I see #6 as a world map.
#2 as a single flying bird with a long neck (swan perhaps?)
#4 as a perched blackcap.
#5 as a single flying bird representation
#7 as the Loch Ness monster
