Starling Murmurations In Blackpool

Starling Murmurations In Blackpool - Wildlife Photography By Yannick Dixon

Have you ever witnessed a starling murmuration? I’m utterly hypnotised whenever I see a murmuration of starlings and, some may say, obsessed with documenting the behaviour of these gregarious birds as they flock to Blackpool in vast numbers to roost during the autumn and winter months.

Over the past eight years I’ve captured countless murmurations for my award-winning wildlife photography series Starlings Above, and now, with the starlings season already underway, I thought it was time to share a selection of my latest photos and video footage of starling murmurations in Blackpool.

Murmurations

Murmurations is a short film is inspired by my documentary photography project Starlings Above which won third place in the Fine Art – Natural History professional category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2009. This short film was captured using a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM in Blackpool between December 2009 to January 2010.

The music is entitled ‘On The Clock Face’ and is kindly used courtesy of Raikes Parade.
