I saw this character sitting on top of the feeding station earlier today. Starlings are quite beautiful when you can see their iridescent sheen. This one appeared extra interesting as it puffed up its feathers.

Starlings are in decline and could do with a little extra help, as mentioned in a previous post, they don’t seem to be fussy eaters and so might benefit from any food put out in gardens.

See the RSPB website for extra information on starlings http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/birdguide/name/s/starling/
