These are by no means technically excellent photos, but they do document my first experience of a Starling mumuration (where the birds flock together before settling down to roost):

They're all very nice Lawrence

I especially like the last how you captured the formation

It's a heck of an experience to witness, isn't it? I think you did quite a good job of capturing it, especially in the first and last shots.

Beautiful captures.
