It is surprising how a dull grey day can unexpected turn into a beautiful evening. Today at RSPB Ham Wall a gap in the weather coincided with the arrival of the starlings back at their roost site.
Following their recent pattern the birds arrived in a few huge flocks and dropped into the reed bed on the western side of Waltons Heath.
The birds streamed over the Tor View hide.
A clear skies the birds put on a great display.
The sky contained a strange series of dots in the clouds.
After landing the birds gradually turn the reed bed black. Once full the birds returned to the sky flying over the footpath back to their favourite roost site in Loxtons Marsh.
The last few birds fly to the Loxtons in the light of the moon.
