Starling photos at Upton

Starlings are surprisingly beautiful birds - just look at those luminescent feathers!
They tend to get a bad press. They are a bit noisy and they like to go around in flocks. They are particularly good to watch at Upton Cottage with young families when they fledge. They nest at the house which gives us a great chance to see them.
