Excuse the jerky movements, the camera seemed to jump into a position at times, also it was very cold which doesn’t help!
I’m always worried about disturbing them…
They didn’t seem at all bothered, it might have been a different matter if I was flying directly above them but keeping low and too the side of the pier I was out of their way. If/when it warms up a bit i’d like to get some better footage.
These shows are fascinating, good capture
These Starling murmurations are amazing at this time of year @markas. We have a massive flock above the village where I live every night although some idiot was launching fireworks at them last night !! The ignorance and stupidity of some people never fails to amaze. Keeping your distance is wise. I don’t think a drone would last long getting too close to them.
I occasionally watch them on skyline webcams, they put on a good show at Brighton Pier most evenings.
I think it is about being conisderate near wildlife. It is the seagulls I worry about as they chase the drones. Wasn’t an issue with the Phantom 3 as that’s a big old bird but with the Mavic mini a gull would easily knock that out of the air.
When I see them I always wondered how many you’d hit with a shotgun.
I reckon a gull could f up a P3 as well!
Depends entirely how much aspect they are presenting. Difference is huge.
Totally agree mate. Some of those gulls are huge and vicious to boot.!!
Looks awesome, almost like someone holding a magnet with pieces of metal and moving it around!
Thanks, going to head back down tonight as it’s now a bit warmer, see if I can get some better footage.
