Common or European Starlings

I spent this morning trawling the runways and old broken down buildings of Davidstow airfield in an unsuccessful attempt to find rare waders and an elusive Rose-coloured Starling.

What I did find were a few common starlings but in the beautiful sunlight they looked anything but common!
Stunning glossy colours and super spotty plumage.

They were feeding on leatherjackets and doing it quite well so the predicted influx of craneflies should benefit them if it ever happens!

Exotic job right here to share that article with us. You have got found it after some study and therefore without a doubt at all that it'll support us all. I'm right here to look for some knowledge with regard to certainly one of my OOH ERP. I'm hoping it helps me to get prompted and located an answer for my predicament quickly.
