  • Wow, they almost look real

    These Starlings were perched on the ornate decoration on top of the towers of the Victorian Pavilion Theatre in Gorleston this lunchtime. I thought they fitted in with the wrought ironwork rather well.

    So this isn't a thread about Katie Price, then?

    Never mind, the starling is an altogether more attractive bird and these blend superbly with the ironwork. Good spot!

        Yes, I once took a shot of a landing stage at Derwent Water with every post but one featuring a resting gull. I named it, "Where's George?"

                I think you are more likely to get yours hands on starlings John

                    Nice shot Ron and I would agree they fit in very well with the wrought iron

                    I am looking forward to getting some more shots of the huge murmuration we experience at Gretna over the winter

                      Hehe, I know I shouldn't be fussy at my age, but in this case I think I would prefer the starlings!
