Nature

Look at these love birds! This stunning flock of birds formed a heart as they flew through the sky.

The murmuration of starlings were sharing the love in time for Valentine’s Day – but it was over in a second.

They were spotted at Shell Bay, Dorset by 59-year-old Jayne Bond.

The retired assistant head teacher managed to grab a photo against the sunset, before the starlings changed shape.

She said: “I’d heard via the grapevine large crowds were gathering each evening to watch the starlings, so my husband and I decided to take a look for ourselves.

“The birds move so fast and their shape is always changing and people around me were shouting ‘look, it’s a heart!’

“The shapes they create just flow through the air like liquid and I doubt the same shape is ever created twice.

“It was amazing.”
