Is it only a murmuration if the birds are starlings? Anyway, I saw a murmuration of some kind of seabirds this morning at Clontarf, it was cool. They all came towards me and I thought I was going to get badly shat on but they all kinda came straight down and landed at the edge of the water just a few feet away. It was impressive, in an instant they had all landed in their own place with no crashes. Then a child ran up to the edge and they took off again, swooping around in formation and murmurationing all over the place.
I love a good murmuration. The starlings went mental in Castlepollard last year. It's starts off slow, and then...woah.
