Lovely video clip Wendy, our starling juveniles are building up and one pair of adults appeared to have six with them this morning unless they adopted one lol
Here's Starlo from yesterday perched on the daring high wire !

Lot to learn
Lovely video Wendy, it reminds me of the time a couple of years ago, when a juv goldfinch enjoyed standing on the pond netting over the fountain, having a wash and also drinking!
We've since had blackbirds and wood pigeons doing the same....

Well I never, did you ever ……. my first ever juvenile Tree Sparrow which arrived in the courtyard half an hour ago. It was eating sunflower hearts; they don't seem to go for live mealworms.
Only record shots through the large front glass doors.
what a little sweetie !
