Thousands of starlings form shape of giant bird

This is the breathtaking moment a murmuration of thousands of starlings took the form of a giant BIRD to scare off attacking sparrowhawks. Guy Benson, 60, captured the mesmerising footage after thousands of birds raced through the sky. The video shows the swirling mass of starlings taking on different shapes as they dodged and weaved – and at one moment even appeared like a huge bird. Guy filmed the two-minute long video as the birds flew over the Attenborough Nature Reserve in Nottingham on Christmas Day.
