Huge flock of birds take shape of a rabbit over Somerset

A photographer has captured the incredible moment a murmuration of starlings took the shape of a RABBIT over the British skyline.

Len Copland was snapping the dusk phenomenon at Ham Wall nature reserve near Glastonbury, Somerset, when it took on the recognisable form.

The swarm first takes the shape of a rabbit's head with long ears and then transforms into a side-on view of the animal.

Ham Wall is a wetland area owned by the RSPB that's home to rare species including water voles, otters and bitterns. It's location at the heart of the Avalon Marshes provides stunning views across the marshes to Glastonbury Tor.
