21st June 2022
Out of the 2 Rose-coloured Starling, that arrived in my garden for two days from the 16th June, no doubt the two individuals seen on St Martins two days before, only one remained and showed off at very close range in the garden.
I’m very fortunate to wake up to a stunning Rose-coloured Starling for the last week. This morning it was still present with some 60 Starling in the long grass field and then back in the garden, mid-afternoon. Throughout it’s stay, it took a liking to my plums and would spend more time protecting them from it’s cousins rather than gettin them down it’s neck! I also observed it havin a bath in pig waterhole out in front of my bedroom window and on two occasions, it roosted in the pine belt. When it first arrived, it’s forehead was covered in pollen from feeding on New Zealand Flax nearby. However, in the last few days it’s had a good scrub and now looks fancy and clean. Below are a number of images of the corker all taken from the bathroom window.
Hopefully it will hang around for anoter day or will it be replaced by another individual? If not now, then a juvenile in the autumn maybe?

Also in the garden, there are 2 Hedgehog that daily feed on the scraps and share the bird bath for a drink
