A flock of 1,000 ceramic starlings have arrived on Bristol's Durdham Downs.
It's hoped the art installation will help raise awareness of the decline in the starling population. Each bird has been handmade by people from Henleaze, Stoke Bishop and Westbury-on-Trym.
October is the best time of year to see starling murmurations - where the birds can be seen flocking in their thousands in the early evening.
Members of the public will be able to see the installation on the corner of Parrys Lane until October 25.
Volunteers will be on hand to provide information on the project at a bird-hide on sight.
Now, it's not long before the Shaun the Sheep sculpture trail invades Bristol but today their real life woolly cousins beat them to it.
When the historic Durdham Downs became a public open space in 1861, property owners nearby were given "commoners' rights" to graze livestock there.
And this afternoon, 15 June, that tradition was upheld.
A controversial plan to end free parking on Bristol's Durdham Downs has been criticised by the area's MP.
Charlotte Leslie and two local councillors say Mayor George Ferguson's plan to remove 500 spaces will outrage residents and commuters who are already opposed to Residents' Parking Zones.
All-day free parking on Bristol's historic Durdham Down could be abolished.
It's the latest controversial attempt to cut down on commuters using the city's streets. Mayor George Ferguson has divided opinion with a rapid roll-out of residents' parking zones and now risks further anger by removing the 500 spaces. He insists it's for long-term good of the city.
