“Sort Sol” – # 6 – landing in the reed forest
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.
