I saw the most astonishing sight on my way to a concert this afternoon – a murmuration of starlings. I spent about half an hour watching in amazement as thousands of these birds darted and weaved above me, in what looked like a black cloud that was forever changing shape. I’ve never seen one before so I couldn’t resist taking a few photos – sadly there wasn’t enough light to make any of them worth posting here. Apparently they regularly gather over this particular part of Chichester so I hope to go back another day when the light is better.
After my detour I finally made it to St. John’s Chapel for my concert – luckily I’d allowed oodles of time so I wasn’t late! I’ve posted photos from here before but wasn’t able to get up on the balcony last time I visited. Before we started rehearsing I set my camera up on the balcony on a tripod to take some photos remotely and I caught a few frames of me conducting among the many decorated trees that were on display as part of their Christmas tree festival.
