INCREDIBLE pictures have captured as huge groups of starlings have appeared in the Borders village of Rigg.

Thousands of the birds have arrived to roost in the village near Gretna, with the sheer weight of numbers causing disruption.

Power supplies in the village have been affected by the number of birds perching on electricity cables.

Starlings are among the most common of garden birds, and can be spotted in the Borders in ‘murmurations’ throughout the Autumn period.
