BELFAST CITY AT NIGHT MARCH 2019
Unfortunately while I did take a number of photographs this was the only one that was useable as the low light performance of my camera is not the best.
A shape-shifting flock of thousands of starlings, called a murmuration, is amazing to see.
Ireland hosts hundreds of thousands of Starlings from numerous countries all over northern Europe each winter, and every evening they group together and perform mesmerising murmurations before settling down to roost together for the night. Wherever you are in Ireland, keep an eye on the sky from around an hour before sunset and you’ll likely see groups of Starlings all flying in the same direction – to a local lake to roost in the reedbeds on the lake fringes, or maybe to an area of forestry to roost in the trees.
