Starling Number Six

Story location: Home / Blog / tv /
15/Aug/2011

I was watching the third episode of the BBC series The Code and the presenter, Marcus du Sautoy, was watching the movement of a flock of starlings. All of a sudden the birds formed the shape of a number 6. The event went completely unnoticed by the presenter but from the screen grab below it looks like he had his eyes closed at the time.

The event occurred at 12m23s into the programme.

I watched a recording of this programme this morning and was amazed when the number appeared. It's so well-defined that I thought it must have been digitally inserted as a joke.
