I still get some in the garden, not the bigger flocks of old though. I try and make sure they get a share of the live mealworms during breeding season to help them along. I’m a Starling fan, love their inquisitive spottiness. Had a couple of leucistic babies in 2007 http://www.rspbliverpool.org.uk/Nestcam07.htm
I’ve met some of the Starlings at the coastguard station last year when I was getting signatures for the ‘save our coast guard petition'. They know where the handouts are.
