Another picture from one of our remote trail cameras.
This time, a flock of starlings, that had been feeding on the grassland in front of the camera, caught taking flight.
During the current lockdown, starlings have been keeping us amused in the garden at home. Several pairs, obviously nesting nearby, have been coming to mealworm that we've been putting out. They've been really bold, coming down whilst we've been sat nearby. The kaleidoscope of shimmering colours in their plumage is truly wonderful, and their social (but also somehow anti-social) antics have been great to watch.
