Rob, of Lowestoft, said: "It was a truly hare-raising experience...

"But seriously, I was awestruck at the starlings' precision flying; moving as one enormous form, and briefly morphing into the shape of a gigantic hare.

"It shows the real beauty and mastery of birds of a feather flocking together."
