Terrifying footage shows thousands of birds flocking together that looks just like a real-life scene from Hitchcock’s The Birds.
Tehleel Afaq, from Srinagar, in Kashmir, India, captured the footage at a rice field near his home.
The gathering together bears a great resemblance to the tense Hitchcock thriller – but luckily these feathered friends did not plan to attack, and were just visiting a feeding station.
Tehleel said: “I was in my neighbourhood when I noticed a huge flock of bird were feeding on a rice field.
“I started to film the feeding birds but I got lucky and the birds suddenly started flying altogether.
“The view was mesmerising.
“I visit that area almost every day but I have not witnessed any such thing before.
Tehleel revisited the field, hoping to see more birds gathered but believes his footage was a one off.
He said: “I visited that place again to see if this happens often but I think it’s very rare for such a large number of birds to fly together.
“It was an incredible moment, at one point I found the whole sky filled with birds.
“They were so close to me and swooped over my head. “
