Though the location of the particular murmuration was unknown, many who came across the video identified the place to be Brighton, a city in England.

Murmuration of starlings is a phenomenon in which hundreds, and sometimes thousands of starlings twist and turn, creating an impression of a shape-shifting cloud, to protect themselves from predator birds.
