The starlings have gone!  About three weeks earlier than last year.  The bird food lasts much longer now.

    Still plenty ( too many ? ) here in Devon.

    Heard recently ( could have been Tweet of the Day ? ) that whilst starlings are suffering a decline the upside is that GS Woodpeckers are taking advantage  - less competition for nesting sites.

    Not talking about native starlings; we are plagued by enormous flocks of starlings which move in for the winter.  Though it is a wonderful sight to watch them go over on the way to their roosts.

    Banal struggle for existence. Woodpeckers take food away from the starlings, the last to survive fly south
