Starlings gathering at sunset over Blackpool Pier

Location: Blackpool North Pier
I have started to take some images of the North West of England other than my beloved Lake District, so where better than to try along the north west coast. We were due to have a lovely sunset so got my gear together and set off for the coast. I remembered that at this time of the year thousands of starlings like to roost under Blackpool North Pier so this is where I headed. Sure enough about 5 minutes before sunset in they came, there were quite a few thousand dancing against the sunset and landing around the pier. I was hoping for the classic murmuration which didn’t really materialise but the timing with the sunset could not have been better.
