Palace Pier is home to one of the largest starling roost in the country, around 30,000 birds in the winter I estimate. They gather on the buildings and sometimes the rides on the pier before they settle for the night in the metalwork that supports the pier, safe from potential predators.
This is part of a series looking at starlings:
