Starling Murmuration Season

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Thanks to the Guardian for this photographic spread on one of our favorite bird phenomena:

From October to March thousands of starlings flock together to perform extraordinary displays across the UK. This gallery captures the murmurations of starlings as they swirl in the sky above reed beds where they roost at night. Some of the pictures were sent to us by our readers via GuardianWitness and via Guardian Environment desk’s Flickr group Green Shoots.
