A starling village in Preston Park

Friends of Preston Park will soon be putting up six starling nest boxes donated by Save our Starlings. Brighton Palace Pier murmuration is a delight for all those who witness the autumnal sky ballet, but this wonderful sight might soon be a thing of the past if we don’t act now to stop the number of birds diminishing. It is estimated that there has been a decline of 87% of starlings in the UK and Brighton over the past 30-40 years and they are now included on the red list of Birds of High Conservation Concern. You can support Save the Starlings by signing the online petition or by following the guidelines on how to make a starling-friendly garden, even having your own starling nest box.
