Storyful

Video captured by Peter Wolstenholme shows a Peregrine falcon tracking the murmurations of Starlings near Timoleague, County Cork. The video shows the Starlings forming defensive swooping and whirling moves in order to avoid the predatory falcon.

Wolstenholme told Storyful the group of birds have been in the Timoleague area since November 2017 and number between 10,000 to 12,000. Credit: Peter Wolstenholme & Birdwatch Ireland West Cork Branch via Storyful
