Rose coloured Starling at Ynyslas

We saw a beautiful adult Rose coloured Starling at Ynyslas this morning, a real stunner.  It was with a group of about 20 of its common cousins, not far from the visitor centre - in the dip where at present there are dozens, probably hundreds of orchids.  There were a lot of  dog walkers present, and the birds were very flighty.  After only a minute or so they took flight and despite spending the next hour or so trying to find them again, that was it for the day.
