A REMARKABLE video shows the moment a murmuration of 40,000 starlings evaporates as they drop out of the sky at the same moment.
Retired water worker Simon Waters, 61, captured the stunning scene at the RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve, in Suffolk.
His footage shows the birds create incredibly dense shapes at one moment and seem to fill the sky the next.
But the clip is really notable for how the starlings suddenly and in unison land to roost for the night.
