I removed the dead birds and the outcome of my first ringed Starlings will be reported to the BTO. This is the second attempt the Stralings have made to raise a brood this year. Perhaps they'll try again if the weather improves. I'll let you know.
To cheer things upand end on a happier note, here's a picture of one of the adult Starlings that have been using the garden this year and which will, hopefully, raise its chicks successfully.
