Autumn "Black Sun" phenomenon in Ribe with starling birds

Now is the season for the famous "Sort Sol" (Black Sun) phenomenon around Southern Denmark, especially good around Ribe. This week on a clear evening we biked out at sunset to a great spot to view the action over the marshlands.

Every year 10 - 12 million migratory birds pass through the Wadden Sea and Ribe's wetland areas. For bird watchers in particular, and anyone who appreciates nature in general, it is a real live spectacle!
