Like nothing you’ve ever seen before – the amazing flocking behaviour of starlings

More serene than many of our other video posts, this is a truly balletic display of avian flight

Winter evenings near this marshland in Oxford see mammoth flocks of starlings take to the sky in a nightly display of incredible aerobatic synchronicity. Watch as swarms of up to a thousand birds undulate like massive waves through the half-lit sky – and never bump into each other. It’s really quite stunning.
