UK Weather : Starlings at dusk in AberystwythAdd to Lightbox
Aberystwyth Wales UK, Monday 04 January 2015
A huge flock of starlings perform spectacular displays in the air above Aberystwyth pier at dusk on Cardigan Bay in west Wales
Each evening between October and March tens of thousands of the birds fly in huge ‘murmurations; in the sky above the town before settling to roost for the night on the cast iron legs of the Victorian seaside pier.
Aberystwyth is one of only a handful of urban starling roosts in the UK.
Although plentiful in Aberystwyth, the starling is on the RSPB’s ‘red list’ of endangered species in the UK
