Has anyone noticed starlings which appear to be feeding on the wing? From my garden in Dunstable in Bedfordshire I can see starlings wheeling around the sky, sometimes short glides and sometimes rapid wing flaps and turns. At that point they seem to have caught a flying insect. This behaviour is common to a whole group of local starlings.

Pebburfoot said:I have been sitting in my garden in Somerset watching the same thing. At first I thought martins but they were too big and too clumsy. On closer inspection I realised they are starlings.
Hello and welcome to the forum Pebburfoot, from the West Midlands.
You may not be aware this thread is two years old, however, it is good to see that you are enjoying the delights of starlings, and no doubt among many other species.
