Having seen two local people post videos of murmurations around Cardiff over previous weeks I thought I’d keep my eyes on the skies and attempt to see my own murmuration in real life!
A few days down Cardiff Bay and no sighting of any birds at all but alas a wander back up the River Taff and I spotted my first murmuration right above the Brains Brewery.
I only had my mobile phone on me so began filming some video of their flight and formations whilst dusk was taking over and light levels diminishing! (Twas a Samsung Galaxy SII if anyone wants to know!)
Neil Mansfield previously captured this amazing video in Cardiff Bay – check out his Landscapes Uncovered website for more great pictures! And another one from local blogger Richard Nosworthy and the same murmuration on the River Taff.
Hopefully I will be armed with a decent camera and a zoom next time! They always look so much more impressive in real life than on camera!
