Starlings have recently become a regular visitors to the garden feeders and they will eat whatever type of food is available - seeds, nuts or fat. They have huge appetites and, in contrast to the larger collared doves that also visit the feeders, they are often aggressive towards other bird species, rarely letting them feed at the same time.
Pictured at South Stack, Anglesey in August 2008.
Pictured on rocks at the edge of Cemaes Bay, August 2008. As well as being accompanied by a black-headed gull, the turnstone was with a flock of oystercatchers and flew with them to some adjacent rocks. It is pictured with the oystercatchers elsewhere in these pages.
In the two older pictures below, this woodpigeon became a regular visitor to this feeder, the only time I have ever seen a woodpigeon take seed from a feeder like this.
