The Aberystwyth Starlings event

5°C, grey, damp and cold. C=56 miles


Starlings roost on the pier in Aberystwyth each night. They fly there each afternoon at sunset.

Well worth the trip to the coast to see this. Flocks fly in without interval, each in a rounded mass which them dive under the pier to spend the night on the girders underneath.

    The rusted and decaying remains of Brighton’s West Pier host similar gatherings. But whereas Aberystwyth’s pier is a peninsula, ours is an island. The starlings don’t seem to care though.
