Starling up date -Day 18

Ruth has just sent me these photos so I am putting them on a separate post.  She says that where she lives it is very cold and windy today and none of them have poked their heads out.




It's really getting a big crowded in there.  The weather is said to improve over the weekend so if they decide to leave then, I hope the weather forecasters have got it correct.  Ruth is worried that she misses them going but we have been fortunate to be able to see they growing over the past few couple of weeks, thanks to her been able to photograph them so I thank her now.

  5. Hi Douglas I am not sure if Ruth would wish for a second brood! She has worked hard at getting these photos but it would be great if she could get them leaving although this probably woud be better recorded on video. I do not live near her otherwise I just may sit and wiat for that event!!!! Margaret
