3/10 Facts about Starlings


  • Male Starlings will sing for much of the year, only stopping for a few weeks during the post breeding-season moult.  they have a curious habit of singing at winter roosts, both on arrival in the evening and before departure in the morning. 
  • One of the most familiar of birds, the once abundant starling has suffered a significant population decline in recent years, and it is now red-listed as a bird of conservation concern. 
  • Despite the population fall, there are still over 800,000 breeding pairs of starlings in the UK. 
  • Starlings are among the most social of birds, and this is particularly noticeable in winter, when they feed in flocks and roost communally. winter roosts can hold anything from a few thousand to several million birds.
