The birds





Trees around the lake in Peckham Rye Park. I've never seen this there before (which doesn't mean much - only taking photos has made me a bit less lost in a world of my own) and don't know if they're just roosting, as the light starts to fail already at about 3 pm, or preparing to leave - too late surely for migration, a week or so after the first strong frosts?

Fascinating patterns in those tree branches, with the dark punctuation marks of birds. Wow.

Beautiful and slightly unsettling, in a Hitchcockian sort of way, I guess!

Such striking and atmospheric images. I hope you have an exhibition one day!

Oh, these are wonderful. I saw something similar (though on a smaller scale) and tried to get photos but the birds eluded me. They rose up in a flock as soon as I clicked, and all I got was blur.
