Firstly I apologise for the quality of these shots, the camera was in my hand with the long lens on and keeping it still whilst trying to stop "The Padster" from chasing the birds was quite difficult LOL.................
Last year was a first for us with the Starlings, this year you wouldn't believe how many we have bringing their youngsters in....... difficult to count with the frantic behaviour but I got up to 75 today all in at the same time before it got so difficult to see through them LOL

They were all over the feeders and the bird bath, feeders topped up five times since 2.30pm fairy cakes are the favourites and I'm afraid they've had their lot for today, this is getting very expensive LOL, following the feast they decided to fight over the bird bath.........




The noise was just tremendous not the most pleasant bird song but the iridescent colours of these birds is just something else.......




Finally time to take off to the woods....... Love these birds but wish they weren't quite so flipping greedy our little fella's just haven't stood a chance today LOL

Similar here. Lots of Starlings and even more juveniles all screaming to be fed.
