One of the most spectacular scenes during the cold, often dull, winter months is a starling murmuration.
Thousands upon thousands of starlings gather, after coming in from miles around. They create amazing patterns in the sky for about half an hour before coming down to roost.
These photos and clips were taken at RSPB Otmoor near Oxfordshire, but there are many other sites around the country.
If you are visiting Otmoor, please lift share or go on a mid week afternoon as the car park is limited and reached by a single track lane which can become blocked on a busy weekend.
