Starling extravaganza




As many as 50,000 COMMON STARLINGS are currently utilising the heat generated by Gretna Green Motorway Services just west of the M6/A74 confluence as you cross the border into Scotland. It is a magical sight and conjures up the real wonder and sparkle of birdwatching and is incredibly soothing and relaxing as the flocks swirl back and forth, completely in unison and as if they are performing a 'sky-dance'. Chris Baines obtained these really evocative images last week.
