Thousands of starlings have been gathering over Shibdon Pond in Blaydon to perform this stunning aerial display.
The large numbers seen in this country in the autumn and winter are not just local birds, but supplemented by millions that arrive from continental Europe.
And in case you didn't know, a group of starlings is known as a 'murmuration'.
Around 15,000 starlings are performing regular aerobatic displays at East Chevington in Northumberland.
They perform their flying formations for around half an hour before roosting in the reed beds.
