The marsh near Aventoft, October, 2014.

 SORT SOL (Translated into English: Black Sun).  Very large numbers of migrational starlings gather in the marshlands in spring and autumn when they move between their winter grounds in southern Europe and their summer breeding grounds in Scandinavia.  Large flocks form huge formations in the sky just before they decide for a location to roost for the night.

Location:

Near Aventoft – close to the border between Denmark and Germany.

In front of us is a large wet area overgrown with reeds and tall grasses.

Date and time: 

The beginning of October. Around sunset in the evening.

Intention: 

To observe a phenomenon that we in Denmark have called: SORT SOL (Translated into English: Black Sun).
