Birbcam is back! It was a problem with one of the USB cables, I think it got wet yesterday and it's shorting. ^.^

If you're watching and you're wondering what the starlings are throwing around trying to 'crack', it's olives from next door's olive tree :D

They've been dropping them on our roof too, and some of them roll down to tinkle over the corrugated zinc back porch roof we have XD

@FrazzledBrynn yeah! :D The starlings are great when they bath, they shake themselves around super fast and it makes this very particular splooshy sound

@welshpixie I watched it for a moment, then realised my mistake as the maine coon slumbering on the seat next to me suddenly WOKE UP

@welshpixie they can't just eat them on the tree then? The massive cherry tree in my garden in Cambridge ended each year as just a load of cherry stones hanging by the stalks after the starlings descended and ate round all the cherries 🤣

@amcewen They possibly find fallen ones on the ground and think they're snails XD

@welshpixie maybe you need to put up some tiny signs to explain the difference to them :-D

@welshpixie hehe they do the same here with cherries, I often wake up to things thudding onto the conservatory roof and rattling down to the gutter
