Today Shapwick Heath turned into a frosty winter land. Perfect day for a very cold bike ride.
The frost was only hanging around in the shade, creating a wonderful contrast with the warm evening colours.
On reaching RSPB Ham Walls, I was mobbed by a series of hungry robins.
Once again the marsh harriers were grabbing all the attention of visitors.
But it was not for the frost, robins or harriers that I came to Ham Wall – it was for the starlings. It was not long before the first flocks appeared.
The flocks grew and grew filling the sky with thousands of birds.
The birds put on a display against a blue and gold sky.
Gradually, the starlings descended behind the trees that edge the Waltons Heath.
The last stream of birds drops into the reeds.
