Starlings gather in the area surrounding St Nicholas' church in Brighton, UK. The starlings didn't roost here but in some nearby trees, the church was one of number of halfway houses they use to assemble. I spotted the starlings gathering here a few weeks before I took this film, and rushed to film it as this epic building provides a majestic backdrop for the starlings' activities. Shortly after they stopped gathering on the church.
