A huge flock of starlings were caught on camera performing over Norwich Castle against a beautiful sunset.

The incredible footage was captured by Fabian Harrison, a 16-year-old student at Sprowston Community High School, after he went to take some photos on St James' Hill in the city.

It was the second time he had seen a starling murmuration after first becoming aware of them when watching the BBC's Springwatch.

He said: 'After first spotting them last year I didn't think they would return to Norwich but I was so lucky to see them again in such a great location and get these really good shots.'

Fabian has a keen interest in wildlife and hopes to pursue a career in photography or film in the future.
