Early morning commuters in Netherfield were in for a rare tweet this morning.
Over 100 starlings made a quick rooftop stop in the town this morning and their arresting chorus filled the skies.
The relaxing sounds were welcomed by commuters waiting for the 44 bus, who are more used to the noise of nearby factories, speeding trains and passing traffic.
Vicki Price was one of those who enjoyed hearing the rare sounds of birdsong while waiting for her bus.
She said: “It’s calming. With all the building work going on around here you hear the sounds of nature less and less. We need to do more to encourage wildlife and nature in our towns.”
