The birds

Yesterday evening, just as I was busy pottering around the workshop my friend who has been here for a few days looked out the window and exclaimed at the sight of hundreds of birds flocking to the trees.

Sadly the pictures don't do the event justice, it was phenominal!

After the birds had all gathered on the tree at the back of the house they flew right over us before swooping around the bay and then congregating on the tree in front of the house.

The noise was amazing and the sight as they flew overhead was like nothing I have ever seen before.

I did manage to get some video of them as they all flew into this tree but it goes on a bit as they appeared from nowhere and continued to arrive, thousands and thousands of them, I have no idea how they even fitted into the tree!
I am going to set my alarm and try to get outside again tomorrow at the same time to see if they come back and I'll get the camera on the right setting and hopefully capture it more clearly.  Even if I don't, I think I want to experience the sight again!
Take care all, til next time

  1. there is a reason they do that, but I can't remember why? It is quite the sight when that happens though.



Thank you for your comments, I do read them all and sometimes I even reply, now that I have figured out how to! Thanks again, take care x
