This is the 2nd year that I have had baby starlings come with their parents and what a joy it is. I wanted to do my bit as Starlings have declined 80% and I have all sorts of other birdies coming every day.
But.... and I feel sad to write this. I have so many Fledglings this year, the noise is constant from before 7am to after 7pm. I give them good grub to be fair but my neighbours are beginning to be nasty to me re the noise and bird poo on their fence (which they put wire on the top)!!!
I feel very protective of them as their parents brought them here and I feel like a shepherd would with their sheep and lambs. I know I must sound silly.
So, I cant stop feeding them all together as thats not right , but can I just cut back to early, midday and afternoonish?
Would love to hear from you Alison
