|Birds over the Shannon earlier this year|
You might remember the recent video we featured of the amazing murmuration above the River Shannon, as thousands of starlings were captured on camera performing their perfectly coordinated acrobatics for the viewers below.
Another video of this amazing phenomenon has been gaining viewers on line. This time, the video is entitled “Lough Ree Starling Dance”, and it is exactly that. The thousands strong flock of starlings fill the sky above a group who are boating on the lake, whose amazement is clear from their reactions, which we can hear in the background.
Watch this spectacular event below; it’s worth watching all the way through, but the action really begins at 5.10, complete with some ‘colorful’ language (be warned) from the narrator.
