At No. 10 was the Undercliff Walk. No. 9 is Brighton's murmuration. Best enjoyed mid-winter, the murmuration begins in Autumn and ends in Spring. March is really the final month to enjoy this great spectacle, which lasts about thirty minutes as flocks of starlings from different parts join together to form an aerial show.

It's best to head to Brighton Pier thirty minutes before sunset, currently around 5:30 pm to fully enjoy this display.

With a different sunset backdrop every single evening, this event is a unique experience every single time you see it.

By the end of March the European starlings will have left for warmer climes and the locals will be occupied with nesting and bringing up their young.

This is without doubt one of the Best Bits About Brighton. Watch the video below for a tantalising glimpse of the birds in flight.
