Miserable drab and wet today. One minute sunny spring and the next we are back to cool and rainy. It seems to have the birdlife a bit irritable about it too, as evidenced by a group of angry starlings paying a brief visit. I thought they were meant to be a sociable bunch.
A squabble of starlings alights on the lawn.
They are in a fight, pouring scorn
or some such venom on each other.
It seems that food is not the bother,
as random feathers drift away
from the iridescent froth of this affray.
The furious fracas abruptly ends
and a mini murmuration ascends.
