Pete asked me the other day what bird I would like to catch next in my garden. Because bird numbers had dropped off and it had been pretty quiet I said that I would be happy with anything.
Later, after giving it more thought I decided that of the regular birds a starling would be good. We occasionally get flocks of about 20 rampaging through.
Imagine my suprise when on Sunday morning I found this in my net. Yes, a starling! (And a nice easy one to age with plenty of brown juvenile plumage left!)
