The incredible flocks of starlings swooping over the remains of Brighton’s West Pier have been a growing attraction for visitors to the city for some years.
Now, the RSPB has built a mobile viewing platform to allow birdwatchers to get a closer look at their airbourne acrobatics, known as murmuration.
Chris Woolner, RSPB South East project officer, said: “Brighton is famous for this amazing spectacle of nature and people come from miles to watch.
“It really is a mesmerising experience and when you stand on the pier as the flock sweeps towards and around you fell like you are part of it.”
This video, Strictly Starlings, was shot this month over the Palace Pier by Peter Greenhalgh.
