Murmurations of Starlings are one of the most impressive displays to be seen in British birding, a synchronized display of flight from a Common Starling flock (also known as European Starling). When walking on the North Kent marshes I came across this amazing bird murmuration performing mass bird flocking on bushes, trees and reeds as well starling mass flight every time they were disturbed by a predator such as a passing Marsh Harrier. Common Starling, Sturnus vulgaris, might be one of the world's most numerous birds and familiar to many birders across the globe but a Common Starling murmuration is still a sight to make most birders stop and marvel.
