Where are they all?
Description:

Not seeing many numbers of Starlings now and they were my wife's pet hate - always getting them away from the birdtable. Last 2 years not many at all.

Starling Numbers

Without doubt we have far fewer starlings here in Northb Hertfordshire...

Sadly ...

... this charismatic little bird is actually in trouble. It is now a UKBAP species and is red book listed. See www.bto.org/birdtrends2010/wcrstarl.shtml for more information.

starlings

I blame UPVC facia boards. How many houses still have gaps under the eaves where starlings used to nest?
