This is the time of year to watch amazing swirling movements of flocks of starlings - murmurations. Brighton Pier is a great place to see this.

Great picture. Charismatic little birds. I did watch the starlings on Autumn Watch, trained to mimic humans for a future Hollywood film. Very clever (the bird that is)though it made me feel very uncomfortable as i can remember the terrapin fashion after teenage mutant ninja hero's and people attempting to collect owls eggs etc after Harry Potter.
