The birds were pictured over Lough Ennell, Co Westmeath, in Ireland.

James said: “I’m usually a sports photographer, so for a while I’ve had a bit of time to think about other things. I had an image in my head.

“I could see they were making shapes. I kept going back, to get the image I had in my head.”

James, who runs Inpho Photography in Ireland, was named the ‘Press Photographer of the Year’ 2021 in Dublin last month.

Meanwhile, Ben Hurst saw starlings having a whale of a time at Fairburn Ings Nature Reserve in West Yorkshire.

He said: “I just got lucky.”
