The Birds Over Blackpool

Well its March and Blackpool has seen its first glimpse of summer and something that really has not happened to this scale before and that is thousands of birds that have made North Pier in Blackpool their home.

For a couple of weeks now they have been dazzling local crowds of people with their mass murmurings.

Every day around sunset they fly in a few at a time then more till there are tens of thousands of them.

Its truly incredible to watch and the show lasts for around 40 minutes and I am not sure how long it will last for but it is truly a natural spectacle worth making the effort to go and view.

So if you happen to be into Blackpool and the weather is fine then hop up to the North Pier and sit back and enjoy the view before the birds leave.
