Sunshine has returned.

At long last the rain seems to have stopped and it has turned cold and sunny and really lovely. Today we have the huge flocks of starlings around us all joining together for their trip to warmer climes no doubt. The size of the flock and the volume of their singing is quite amazing. I was walking the dogs earlier and seemed to be almost enveloped by the them at one time, it was magic as they soared up and down in the vineyards and then perched in the trees, only to take off a few minutes later and do it all again.



I have just been out and tried to get a few pics of them but they don't really do justice to it all.
