It can get very busy when the brat pack arrives, at least a couple of dozen Starlings all wanting a wash and brush up at the same time. There are a lot of youngsters this year, distinguished by their brown feathers. When one has a bath they all get a shower. As always there is plenty of noisy squabbling:
After a good bath which turns the water from clear to a murky brown they spend time preening in the sunshine.
Have a great weekend observing the antics of the wildlife around you.
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
