Rose-coloured Starling (adult) at Portland in June 2000
This striking bird gave me quite a turn as it flew across the road just feet in front of my car on Sunday 4 June. It spent most of that afternoon either perched on the fence or feeding in the fields adjacent to the dung heap. It was also seen from time to time on various parts of the island up to mid June.
