Get the ear plugs ready Wendy; I'm still finding it a novelty until 30 starlings land in the courtyard and then I thank goodness we are leaving the rental soon lol Unfortunately, I will be unable to feed the birds on our new balcony as we would be in danger of getting mallards on it !! Canada Geese recently hatched eggs in the water fountain which has been out of action and they've now headed off somewhere. Lots of wildlife from the huge expanse of windows at our new place so I won't be short of bird life and can even hear Goldcrests. It was interesting to hear during the quieter lockdown that the first Stork chicks hatched down south !
Lot to learn
Managed to get one of the young starlings in flight today …….. it was just taking off from the overhead cable
and we have a new freshly baked Spudgie muffin batch today !! they all headed to the fruit bowl pool for a freshen up......

Fabulous photos Hazel, though at a quick glance, the first one of the starling taking off, looked almost as the poor thing was being hanged!
