Carn Brea, Murmuration and Sunset

23 Nov

The clouds over Carn Brea as we set off to see the murmurations in Marazion suggested that there might be a good sunset. There was!

The starlings put on a reasonable show tonight but seemed rather keen  to settle into the reed beds with fewer patterns than we have sometimes seen. We may have missed some as the sunset was so spectacular that we kept turning round to watch that and then back to the birds.

The reed beds where they settle for the night

This post is for my dear friend, Angie, whom I have not seen for too long but who, on her last visit to us, enjoyed the murmurations. This post comes with love for a wonderful and sustaining friendship.

    The sunset over the sea is amazing. I got photos too, but not with the water. Starlings come and feed in the fields behind my house and I see them setting off just before sunset. Very difficult to get a good shot of them though as they are so close, some even fly overhead. I must make an effort to get to Marazion to see them.

    Wow, what a beautiful set of photos. Wish I had been there. Though we have been having some lovely sunsets on the North Norfolk coast this week. 🙂

      It’s a good time of year for dramatic sunsets. I love the really cold bright days that end in fiery skies. Glad you are getting them too. 🙂
