Starlings

The starlings have found the suet blocks. It's like a Hitchcock movie out there.

I'm told people don't like starlings because they hang out in gangs and twitter too much. I think they're beautiful- sleek and streamlined like Concorde, with an iridescent sheen to them if you manage to get close.

The robin sits in the holly bush, a little apart, fluffs itself up and waits for them to bugger off.
