mercurial starlings

At usual at this time of year I stand in the garden around dusk and wait for the perfectly on-time flocks of starlings to stream overhead. They are like balls of mercury, shape-shifting and sweeping around the sky until dropping, as one, out of the air and into the trees. When they pass over my head the sound is like a wave, the air moving with their beating wings. I don’t care how cold I get outside – I never miss it if i can help it. I filmed it ….it’s twilight and not the best bit of film.
