'Common' Starling. I've been half-heartedly planning/working on my bird bath project for 3 years and decided to finally put everything into place so here are the first few worthwhile photos, taken in poor light today.

A couple of lessons quickly learned too. 1. if you sit very close to your subject in a dark hide BUT you keep the live-view on, the birds will spot your glowing face! 2. a circular bath may look great cosmetically and be easy to create BUT a longer pool of water will give more space to work with. Switched off live-view and looking for the mark II pool as we speak - don't hold your breath though!
