One of the few positives of last year’s lockdown was the opportunity to dedicate much more time than usual to photography, in particular documenting the annual spectacle of our starling murmurations here in Aberystwyth.
Over the winter I spent many evenings stood shivering on a windy jetty, or huddled on the beach beneath, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the starling flock as the sun began to set. My efforts were rewarded with hundreds of photographs and some truly memorable encounters, particularly when attacking birds of prey added more excitement and drama to the event.
I had gathered quite the collection of images over the season and have a few plans in the pipeline of how to showcase this project, an exhibition, a photo book perhaps? In the meantime you can now enjoy 12 of my favourites which I have compiled into a vibrant, unique calendar for 2022.
