Starling murmuration at Idle Valley Nature Reserve
A Murmuration is a gathering of large flocks of Starlings. They start to get together at Dusk during Autumn in their roosting sites and fly together creating amazing swirling patterns. The reason they get together is because there is safety in numbers, particularily from birds of prey such as Falcons. A large group means its also easier to keep warm during Winter and they can also pass on information such as good feeding areas.
