We've got dozens and dozens of starling babies this year. I love starlings.
There's a certain lovely joy to watching them grow up. They start off completely awkward, being fed by the parents, looking as confused as Matt Hancock fielding a technical question in a press conference, but then get their confidence and start appearing in little youth gangs.
And then they become teenagers. And that's maybe the best bit.
Londoners: is there still a big flock at Kensington Gardens? I used to hand feed them for ages. Probably in a hundred tourists' photos entitled "look at this mad tall bastard"
Almost every starling's favourite footballer is Fulham-era Geoff Horsfield.
Starlings often have a second brood so I'll be repeating this thread in July
