The sight of starlings bathing in my garden birdbath has always delighted me and was high up on my to-do list for making a print - and here it is!  Starlings are amongst my favourite visitors to our tiny town centre garden, but sadly they are now on the "red list" for species under threat here in the UK.  Long term monitoring reveals that these birds have declined in numbers by 66% since the mid 1970s.  Seeing them in my garden and making this print, fills me with the optimism that provided we nurture them, Starlings will survive and continue to give us joy, as they gather in their chattering groups.  I was privileged to work with a wonderful photograph by Keith Turner as source material - please check out his Instagram account @kthtrnr_ to see more of his wonderful photographs :)
