Starlings are the bane of my life, each year I wouldn't know how many tractors are burnt out by 'operators'-in the loosest terms- not checking for nest material.Pete, mankind hasn't been very considerate of it's damage to Mother Earth as it migrated around, taking all of it's favorite species with it.......
Our Forefathers thought we needed the English Sparrow and Starling here in America. Both a total pest and burden to local species of birds.
Sparrows I like. They are on the up again after being badly affected by salmonella, we presume. Passing it to each other after feeding at birdtables in gardens is a likely a reason as I've heard.
Pumpkins flowering at last, been a slow year for them so far.
