Tresinwen - Rose Coloured Starling (28 Oct 12)

While putting up the bird feeders in the garden I heard a big flock of Starlings feeding in the field behind the house.

On closer inspection there were about 1,000 Starlings feeding very noisily and in with them a 1st Win Rose Coloured Starling.  Flock very mobile feeding in any of the fields around the house and at one point beyond the pond at Bronmor with the Rosy and others roosting in the trees in the garden temporarily.

Watched from 1330 to 1350 when a wet Sparrowhawk flushed the flock which then flew over my house and in the direction of the camping field.  I will take another look if this rain stops.  (If !)
