A murmuration is a mass aerial stunt – thousands of birds all swooping and diving in unison. It’s completely breathtaking to witness.
We think that starlings do it for many reasons. Grouping together offers safety in numbers – predators such as peregrine falcons find it hard to target one bird in the middle of a hypnotising flock of thousands.
They also gather to keep warm at night and to exchange information, such as good feeding areas.
They gather over their roosting site, and perform their wheeling stunts before they roost for the night. Check out the RSPB site for more details.
For most prints any custom size on many different papers or canvases are avaliable through special order, please contact us at Room212 for details
Hannah Bailey graduated from the University of Brighton in 2010, and moved to Bristol, where she has made herself a home on the wonderful arts hub that is Gloucester Road.
Hannah’s work is inspired by natural forms, growing things and landscape, often informative and colourful. Her illustrations begin with pencil sketches that are traced and each tiny shape or segment hand-cut into a stencil. She then uses vibrant inks to fill the shapes with texture and colour, digitalises the elements and rearranges them into a final composition.
All of her prints are high quality giclees, printed locally and custom-framed in Bristol
