I was taking pictures of Goldfinches when suddenly this lovely Redwing came swooping down for a bath and scared the other birds away. I was really please with this picture. It was taken at Marton Mere.

The Murmuration at Marton Mere took us all by surprise. It started off as a "m" with just a few starlings flying about as the sun went down.
Then it got to a "murm" and we started to get a bit excited about what was happening.
Then a full, gargantuan murmuration was happening right over our heads.
They made some amazing shapes and you could hear the sound of their wings beating.
I never will forget it.
