THIS is a video of a spectacular starling murmuration which has been providing an astonishing aerial display over Skipton.

It has been steadily getting larger each night as the sun goes down before the many thousands of starlings settle down to roost.

The video was shot by Carolyn Bell who has captured the mesmering and hypnotic choreography the birds provide each evening over centre of the town.

She captured the images while standing on Coach Street bridge where a crowd of appreciative onlookers have been gathering to watch the spectacular display.

The video is more than five minutes long, so enjoy.
