Yesterday I got home from work to discover a few feathers in the living room. Having two cats I went searching for a corpse. Keeping in mind they are house cats I was already a little confused. I then found a perfectly healthy young starling sitting around on top of the kitchen units, it headed off happily enough when I opened the back door. All a little odd but i’d had the door open in the morning so, you know, not impossible.
Tonight I came home to an exact repeat of yesterday’s scenario, only there was more poo, so lots of cleaning occurred in the kitchen once the bird had flown. I have searched the whole house and not found a single place a starling could get in. I am thoroughly confused and a little wigged out.
I will be doing a thorough starling check before going to work tomorrow, we shall see if there are to be more, but all in all I am not pleased with this turn of events.
