Photo 8 Dec 30 notes Thousands of starlings gather in the skies above the pier in Aberystwyth on the west Wales coast. Every evening at sunset the birds perform complex patterns in the air before settling on the cast iron pier for the night. A Royal Pier employee in a bright yellow jacket has the job of keeping the birds from landing on the handrails. Picture: keith morris / Alamy (via Pictures of the day: 26 November 2013 - Telegraph)
