In formation

I discovered this amazing video of a flock of starlings:

Murmuration from Sophie Windsor Clive on Vimeo.

The video is by Sophie Windsor Clive and titled Murmuration (who knew there was such a brilliant name for a flock of starlings?)

I got a bit hooked on finding similar things - this one is lovely too:


  1. The starlings here on the pier do the same, it's amazing to watch. They always remind me of a swarm of bees in a old cartoon forming a giant arrow or a hammer or something and chasing the bad guy!

  2. Ah yes, I'd forgotten how cartoons used to do that! Thanks for the video. I've never seen the starlings fly in Brighton, must look out for them if I'm ever there again.
