IT MAY look like a clever advert for BBC Two, but this is a real-life flock of starlings.

Former Oxford Mail photographer George Reszeter took this picture of the ritual, known as a murmuration, often performed by birds before going to roost for the night.

He said of the image, taken near Didcot Power Station: “It was amazing.

“They must have seen the cables and somehow made that two. I have never seen anything like it.”
