simonali said:Mike, I literally can't recall the last time I saw a starling. They seem to be very rare round these parts.
Starlings are still quite scarce in many places.
I wouldn't say we have that large number, but summertime, seeing close on 20 or so in our (very urban) garden isn't a rare thing the last three or four years.

I have snapped an averagely good photo of the mystery visitor. I'm pretty sure it's a female blackcap?
Found this funny pic of a moulting blackbird on the camera. Beak is a bit yellow...
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
