i love this time of the year when the Starlings arrive from Russia and congregate in our sycamore tree in the back garden. Most people do not see past the bird that strips the feeders. They are overlooked for being a pest but i do to photograph them at this time of year. They breed in and around the house and when the young fledge its a great time to photograph them as they all cram in tight in the small garden pond.
Take a look at the colours on the face and neck.
