Garden Starlings...

Our neighbour has 3 conifers in her garden. From mid summer until late autumn they attract a small roost of up to 500 starlings with numbers decreasing as winter arrives. I wonder if they move off with continental starlings coming in from the east?

Anyway, this year the starling roost has gone mad! There are thousands of them. I like them but wonder what will happen if numbers continue to increase in the winter? If they get moved on during a cold spell it wouldn't do the poor things any good...

We watched the Starlings in Beadnell to, if it was not raining they would start coming together on the telephone lines at the back of the Bungalow we were staying. One night we followed them round the village and we think they were going to roost in the large garden of Harbour Rd/ The haven Rd right on the corner, they have a good stretch of wooded area down one side.
