Thanks to Neill Hunt (link to Neill's website up on the right) for his shots of the adult Rose Coloured Starling at Inskip near Preston today.
A very tasty bird to have on your Lancs list, and I must admit an embarrassing "bogey-bird" for me for years before I finally connected with an adult in Skipton some years ago.
"Went up to Inskip for the Pink Stink today, it was very very nice", Neill explains.
"A lovely lady invited me into her house and I was able to sit in her lounge and see the starling through the patio doors!
"It was no more than 20 feet away feeding around the bottom of her bird table, an excellent bird well worth the visit if you or your readers get the chance".
Thanks for the shots buddy - just remember, you can never be too careful going into strangers' houses north of the River Douglas....whether it's for a Stinky Pink or not.
You know what I'm saying.
More pix on Neill's website (of the bird that is, not scary Deliverance hillbillies).
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies....
