Watch the Starlings

North Pier is one of a few places in the country where you can see the amazing sight of a starling murmuration.

Throughout the months of late autumn and winter, the Piers (especially North and Central) are a roost for tens of thousands of birds. Each night when they arrive at dusk they create a spectacular display known as a murmuration. They swoop and glide as one huge, black mass as they fly to the pier to bed down for the night.

Amy Lou, from Tipton, famously hit the front page of every national tabloid, when the powerhouse singer wowed judges with her amazing voice. At thirty weeks pregnant during her first audition, she gave birth to her daughter Aida just hours before it aired. Singing Beyonce’s Listen from the Broadway Musical Dreamgirls, she left the judges speechless.

In the semi-finals, she again took the roof off with her incredible rendition of And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going, displaying the sort of vocal Olympics only championed by the likes of the legendary Whitney Houston and Jennifer Hudson. She narrowly missed out on winning the whole competition when she sang Christina Aguilera’s Reflection from the Disney film Mulan in the Grand Final, and probably deserved to take the crown overall. Amy is quite simply one of the greatest singers anyone could ever wish to hear!
