Rose-Coloured Starling Dungeness

Having only seen birds in first winter plumage previously I tagged along with RB to see the Rosy Starling at Dunge. I guess its part of what looks set to be an influx/invasion with hundreds being seen on the continent and quite a few over here already.

I couldn’t believe the brightness of the mantle, it seemed to emit light! perhaps with it being earlier in the year/less worn etc.

Eyes to the telephone wires/supermarket roofs/anywhere really…
