A spectacular natural display has been caught on camera.
This mesmerising footage of a giant murmuration of starlings was filmed on Caxton Way in Thetford by Martin Heathcote.
He shared the video on Facebook, sparking a flood of comments from others who had witnessed the hypnotic flock of birds over Ash Close and Rowan Close in the Breckland town.
Starlings tend to flock to the region during the winter months, making the journey over from Scandinavia for the milder weather.
Their flocks - known as murmurations - can number thousands of birds, and are used for safety from predators.
