Brighton Pier

We managed to dodge heavy showers all the way to Brighton and parked the bike right at the Palace Pier. As we arrived, so did the Starlings and we watched them swarming around until they went into roost under the pier. The murmuration didn't last too long this evening though, possibly due to the very windy conditions but the backdrop of the stormy sea made this jaw-dropping spectacle even more exciting.
If you want to see the starlings yourself, just arrive at the pier about an hour before sunset in lots of warm clothes and wait for them. A flask of hot soup would make the whole thing even more enjoyable.
