Probably - not sure if or where Starlings migrate. They are certainly filling u0p with seeds from the date palms here on the Isle of Wight

Actually some Starlings, not all, migrate.They come from Scandinavia for winter here and go back to breed in February.

We used to get huge numbers which sadly declined - but this year there are more again. Wonderful how they act in unison - just as some shoals of fish do

Thanks Marg - sad about seeing that one on it's own a few days later - hope the flock didn't migrate and leave it6 behind. If they did - I'll see that it's fed through the Winter

They have all gone to their Winter quarters now - wherever starlings go

I like their chatter. We had a large conifer blow down in the storm two weeks ago and it was where hundreds of starlings roost.. Now they've had to find new homes, and I've got a hundred or so in the tree outside my bedroom window..I hope theyre not all going to wake up at 3.30am in the Summer!

Yes - where you see them in this picture - there is an ornamental palm tree just below and they love the seeds. - They all fly down together - then all fly away together. Starlings stay together very much as a flock
