A flock of them in a motorway service area car park. They were successfully begging food from weary drivers!

It looks a bit ragged -

May have been bathing in one of the puddles just beforehand.

I agree

Hi Roger, yes it was pruning itself so I guess your assumption is correct :D

Remember Pam Ayres?

"We're starlings, the misses, meself and the boys,
We don't go round hoppin', we walks.
We don't go in for this singing all day,
And twittering about, we just squawks."

Not heard that one before, a lovely little poem that sums up Starlings very nicely ;-)
