I regularly get 8-10 Starlings in the garden throughout the winter. However the numbers have increased dramatically to over 60 yesterday including some 50 odd youngsters.

Yesterday they demolished 4 fat balls, 2 large insect fat candles, the contents of a large seed feeder and more besides. The squabbles were frequent and the what a din they made.

Has anyone else had a similar increase in numbers, great to see and hear.
