Stunning footage shows murmuration of starlings with picturesque sunset background in UK

This stunning video shows a starling murmuration twisting and turning with a beautiful sunset backdrop in Exeter, southwest England.

The footage captured against a dramatic sunset shows thousands of the birds forming the romantic sign and was described as "mesmerising."

At around the 40-second mark, the birds appear to form into the shape of a love heart.

It was filmed from the sea by Annika, 40, and Martin Connolly, 44, who run Discovery surf school.

This video was filmed on January 20.
