Tens of thousands of birds have been mesmerising people with their acrobatic displays across the island of Ireland.
This mesmerising footage shows the moment more than 10,000 starlings filled the sky in front of a handful of stunned onlookers.
A birdwatcher has captured breathtaking footage of a swarm of birds flying in formation.
A stunning video has been released showing a flock of starlings swirling in the sky in a phenomenon known as murmuration, in the Negev Desert, Israel.
It is one of the wonders of nature – thousands of starlings acting together as a single living creature, and yet no-one really knows why.
