The Magor Pill Starling

A few photos of the leucistic Starling at Magor Pill,...

Strikingly pale but note the all blackish, relatively long and pointy bill; and lack of contrasting dark wing and tail. 

Feeding on the saltmarsh so tricky to observe on the ground; it does sit on the sea wall and in nearby hedgerows though,... so fill ya boots folks!

Most eye-catching in flight when the washed out remiges and rectrices mean it sticks out like a sore thumb.
Pretty huh?
