Rose coloured Starling in the rain
On Monday 16th June after work I travelled straight to Pinewood Avenue, unfortunately a Sparrowhawk had just dashed through the garden where it usually was and walking down an alleyway I saw Ricky F who indicated he had it in a bush, we got some good views of the fine Rose - coloured Starling perched in the bush if partially obscured. We retraced our steps to the alleyway and looked across the garden to see it. It later flew back to Pinewood Avenue and was seen along the edge of a roof in the company of 8 other Starlings. It perched just below the apex of the roof as well as hopping up to stand on the very top of the roof. At 7.45pm it flew strongly east.
