Starlings at Albert Bridge, Belfast

There’s a rather nice murmuration of starlings each night as they go to roost under Albert Bridge in Belfast. This is a relatively small flock but is nonetheless an impressive sight as they dive under the bridge just as dusk falls. I’ve watched it several times but have not witnessed them being attacked by any predators, which would result in those awesome formations that occur when they swarm together to escape their attacker. Still it is a wonderful spectacle and well worth the time to view and photograph.
