We've got a group of juveniles (plain browny-grey) with some adults that nested in the neighbours' roof; now they're hanging around, roosting in the trees and hedgerows around our garden and taking the fat pellets and mealworms from the bird feeders. Noisy but fascinating - they make so many different noises, clicks and whistles. In the autumn they'll leave our gardens and join the huge flocks that roost in reedbeds etc, and perform those amazing murmurations in the sky.
Edd, stop trying to frighten people you know perfectly well that they'll not harm Baza's newly planted crops - they're great for gardens as they eat leatherjackets etc
