Thousands of starlings surround a lone bird of prey which had swooped down to pick off a straggler. "Starlings have a very particular way of defending themselves from their predators like falcons and harriers. They form a large tightly packed flock and mob their enemy, scaring it off, frequently expanding and contracting and changing shape."

Starling - Most people dislike this bird but I love them.  They can mimic any sound and I had one that used to "bark" at my feeder if it was out of suet!

Just one of the birds in decline in the UK. Starlings hit an all time low in the 2013 #birdwatch with their numbers sinking by a further 16 per cent from 2012. Do you expect to see starlings during your #birdwatch this weekend?

One of our struggling species... you may see lots of starlings in your garden but they are actually in decline. Are you still lucky enough to have them visit your garden? Big Garden #Birdwatch.
