Over the past decade, this award-winning wildlife photography series has revealed the beauty and science behind one of Nature’s most magnificent spectacles. Every year between late autumn through winter, North Pier in Blackpool hosts a vast communal roost of starlings and is a prime location to witness a “murmuration” in the UK.
A murmuration of starlings is one of the most remarkable events in the Natural world and are truly breathtaking to witness. For over a decade I’ve documented the hypnotic behaviour of hundreds of starling murmurations at North Pier.
There is an innate beauty in the way these gregarious birds fly together, creating huge shape-shifting murmurations silhouetted against the sky, which I’m infatuated with capturing with my camera.
