Starling Murmuration

I like this video of a starling murmuration because it is one of the few I could find on You Tube which hadn’t added music and I like the fact that it took place above a service station on the M6. I can picture all the ordinary people bound up in their journeys and their own concerns suddenly looking up and seeing this and imagine it must have been far more of a energising wake up call than the shot of double espresso they had stopped off for.

  1. “…birds of a feather, flock together”….. yet, perhaps starlings enjoy their aerial sociability for another important reason, other than entertaining car drivers filling up on the M6; –to ward off local hawks and falcons, also seeking their regular, tasty, ‘take-aways’.
