    Try not to make us feel sorry for you. You should try living in Wales!

    I'm not sure about this one. My first reaction was 'what is of interest here?'. But without the distraction of too much detail and content I started to imagine things, such as 'Why is it that birds don't crash into one another...?'

    Feel sorry, i dont mind Normaly i dont like these kind of pictures when i see them, but this one cought my eye. I found in picture the spiral shape and number nine and six. When Im out and see birds flyind in sky goin' around without any problems it makes me think that why we people need the traffic lights

    The question of why they don't crash into each other is answered here - as far as understand it they just 'keep en eye' on the nearest 7 birds,researchers have slowed down a video like this one here to see what happens.You may find this interesting- watch the video,it's fascinating- I live about an hour from this place so I'll put it on my 'to visit' list - I note he says it occurs in winter.

    Thanks, John, that's very interesting. Presumably humans are slightly more capable that that, and can manage up to eight others, rather than seven? Red Arrows
