murmuration of starlings

Stepping outside the back door this afternoon I was hit by the sound of a murmuration of starlings in the trees by the pond. They were so noisy that the guinea fowl just stood dumbstruck.

The break in the wet weather gave us a chance to get the wheat drilled this morning. It's been a bit stop, go for drilling this year.

Is that the collective noun? How kind of them to give you the opportunity to use it!
