Starling without an abacus

Finally … proof that Rose Coloured Starlings can’t count!

This individual was at Land’s End and was just one of the birds we saw on our tour to Scillies this year. An excellent tour with fantastic scenery, a wonderful hotel, good company and some great birds: 117 species including Garganey, Balearic Shearwaters, Storm Petrel, Red Kite, Osprey, numerous Merlins and Peregrines, Jack Snipe, Grey Phalarope, Mediterranean Gulls, Ring billed Gull, Short eared Owl, Firecrests, Yellow browed Warblers, a rather contentious (what I presume to be an eastern race) Willow Warbler pretending to be an Arctic Warbler, Rose Coloured Starling, Ring Ousel, Black Redstarts, Red flanked Bluetail, Pied Flycatcher, Whinchat, Richards Pipit, Blyth’s Pipit, Short toed Lark, Cirl Bunting, Little Buntings and a Common Rosefinch in addition to four species of cetacean– could you ask for more?

Places on next year’s tour are now open for booking. See details here where a full itinerary can be downloaded … but don’t hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions.
