A collection of starlings is called a murmuration. This one was captured by Liberty Smith and Sophie Windsor. Incredible.

    This is fantastic, thanks so much. I could do without the music. I mean, could we observe nature as it is, without ascribing any quality, in this case sound? Thanks again. Best wishes.
