Amazing Starlings

I remember the first time I saw starlings flocking like this.  I could barely believe my eyes as I stood on the deck of a ferry, leaving the Scottish port of Stranraer on a journey to Northern Ireland.  See something similar here.  This beautiful video was taken not far from my home in Oxfordshire.

Amazing, isn't it!

Amazing but a sight we could do without in Australia. However stupid early immigrants decided they couldn't live without starlings, sparrows, Foxes, rabbits etc. Now all the body things are a plague on the landscape endangering and in some cases wiping out our native species.

Seriously if I had a time machine I would go back and educate them with a baseball bat about introducing species where they don't belong. Even kookaburras which are native to the east coast cause major problems in the west since some fool thought they would be nice over there.
