Brighton Palace Pier built 1863-66:
Starlings started using the furthest end of West Pier huge metal skeleton deserted dilapidated ‘bird cage’ Concert Hall soon after the ‘Great Storm of 1987’ – That had bought down tons upon tons of trees and bushes all over Britain.
Thousands of Starlings flying in from over 20 miles away arriving from all directions to roost for the night. To roost over water all held closely together giving them in their numbers – ‘Protection from predators.’
Gathering in enormous ‘murmurations’ above their roosting sites sometimes numbering hundreds of thousands.
“A cacophony of sound giving us amazing winter flock aerial spectacles of flying hanging patterns twisting turning into a sculpture of coordination.”
Thousands of birds rocketing through out of sky a theatrical beat into a white noise soup of flying starlings floating in sky performance until they settled down for the night around 10pm. Before dawn the whole roost leaving in waves of breathing clouds of deep black Starlings.
Palace West Pier – Now like a ghost of an empty white beached metal whale. “Starlings flock aerial spectacles wickedly tragically have passed into history.”
