Shetland Starling

While migrant Starlings have started to arrive in Shetland, these will soon move through the islands and head south

Our own Starlings, a subspecies do not migrate and provide plenty of entertainment throughout the year.

They seem to be a lot nosier than the migrants and even now are displaying. When caught in the sun they show off their true colours.

While we have flocks of starlings at this time of year, often seen in groups of around 100, we don't have the massive flocks found south

Never the less they are a fine bird to see and can be seen perching on the backs of sheep or Shetland ponies to get a height advantage.
