Sunsets and Starlings

Two of the (many) highlights of living in Aberystwyth can be experienced within 3 minutes of my front door.

Firstly, with nothing to the west of us except sea we get the most wonderful sunsets throughout the year.

Secondly, we are so lucky to have one of the most amazing natural spectacles taking place every day right next to where we live throughout the winter months.

Every day thousands and thousands of starlings come into roost under the pier and form the most beautiful aerial displays. Having several hundred birds swooping down around you as they dive under the pier is something that must be experienced!

I’m trying to etch these memories in my mind for when we’re stuck in the city!


  1. I think you'll also find beautiful things in the city :) But I agree we do live in a beautiful place.

  2. Amazing photos, I love to watch birds flock


  3. Love every single picture!
    You're right. You're a very lucky girl living where you live!

  4. Gorgeous photos! And WOW, look at all those starlings!

  5. Thanks for your comment on my blog :) I'm so happy to find a blogger from the UK... I'm actually British, but I grew up in Africa and now live in the United States with my American husband. I love your blog... it seems we have quite a few things in common... I love photography and cooking as well!
