Common Starling / Sturnus Vulgaris. Common indeed but still a beautiful bird and all the more impressive when seen flying in their thousands (known as murmuratuons). Photo by Estornino Pinto Santiago M. C

Starling - Most people dislike this bird but I love them. They can mimic any sound and I had one that used to "bark" at my feeder if it was out of suet!

One of our struggling species... you may see lots of starlings in your garden but they are actually in decline. Are you still lucky enough to have them visit your garden? Big Garden #Birdwatch.

Thousands of starlings surround a lone bird of prey which had swooped down to pick off a straggler. "Starlings have a very particular way of defending themselves from their predators like falcons and harriers. They form a large tightly packed flock and mob their enemy, scaring it off, frequently expanding and contracting and changing shape."

A Murmuration of Starlings. From a distance they sound like a waterfall, all those beating wings as they settle for the night after their ariel acrobactics. Just magical. Go see and HEAR.
