Hotel with a View

To & Fro 205

Starlings are gathering on the marsh in large numbers, as are geese and lapwings…

Along one side of the marsh are a line of electricity pylons which the starlings fully utilise in the late evening and night…each evening they choose a different one, though I do wonder how they manage to make a collective decision over which one to choose…

They create plenty of commotion and noise as they gather and line up at sunset at these convenient and well ventilated, electric hotels. 😉
