    It's a shame the camera couldn't quite pick up the natural colours showing in the sunlight. Beautiful.

    For anyone interested. The SpringWatch site. I love this programme (allthough I miss Bill).

    EUROPEAN STARLING
    This species, as its name indicates, was brought to North America. In the autumn of 1890, 80 birds were released in Central Park in New York City. An additional 40 birds were set free the following spring. From that initial population, they have multiplied and spread across the continent, occupying all open urban and agricultural areas of Canada, USA and parts of Mexico.
    All this due to an Englishman, a lover of the works of Shakespeare, who, it is rumoured, wanted to introduce all of the birds mentioned in Shakespeare's plays into the United States.

    I think the Americans reciprocated

    The North American grey squirrel was deliberately introduced to Britain and other parts of Europe during the 19th Century. Since then, despite being released merely as a curiosity to satisfy the Victorian penchant for novelty, the adaptable and hardy grey squirrel has thrived in Britain’s parks, gardens and woodlands. Indeed, it has now become so widespread, that it is accepted by many as a natural part of our wildlife, much enjoyed by many people and perhaps one of the most commonly seen British mammals.
