Today, the most frequent species in the garden, as it often always is, was good numbers of Starlings, the vast majority of which are juvenile birds which are now acquiring adult plumage. As well as food which I provide, Starlings are now attracted to my Dogwood where they are taking the ripening berries, or Dogberries.
