Amazing video of a starling murmuration at Cossington in Leicestershire

A Leicestershire photographer caught this stunning footage of a starling murmuration over the skies of Cossington.

The video was captured last week by Bill Newsinger. It is an amazing sight as hundreds of starlings form sweeping ball like shapes to create a magnificent starling murmuration.

As they fly, they seem to be connected together. They twist and turn and change direction at a moments notice.

It is believed the birds gather in crowds to keep safe and warm, before flying down to their roosting site.
