See the Starlings at Blackpool North Pier
North Pier is one of a few places in the country where you can see this amazing sight.
Throughout the months of late autumn and winter, Blackpool North Pier is a roost to tens of thousands of starlings. Each night when they arrive at dusk they create a spectacular display known as a murmuration. They swoop and glide as one huge, black mass as they fly to the pier to bed down for the night.
