Well just one actually. Every so often you just have to move everything from under the bed and give it a good old clean. I did that a few days ago and came across a mummified bat. After a bit of detective work it has been identified as a pipistrelle. How it got there is any ones guess. Mine is that it was roosting in the loft, went for a walk about and couldn't get back. Before Christmas we had insulation fitted so it may have been disturbed by that.
Definitely the plural. We get up to fifty starlings descending on the bird table every morning. They polish off most of the food within minutes.
But for some time I have been trying to find out where they roost at night so I can see and hopefully photograph a murmuration. Well recently I found one not far away and got my pictures
Then a couple of days later on my morning walk I came across another morning murmuration occupying a pylon
The other place where I have seen large numbers of starlings is Cairnbulg Harbour
The themed competition held recently was about 'Weather' and there has been a lot of it about. I got First, Third and a joint fourth place for my three entries.You can see the first and second here . I took quite a few images of the weathher before deciding on which three to put in. Here is the third one
and here are a few of the ones I did not use
Here are a few miscellaneous images I have taken in the last couple of weeks
