Shetland Starling (2)

Shetland Starling (2)

Shetland has its own endemic subspecies of Starling, the Sturnus vulgaris zetlandicus. They're very common here but I enjoy photographing them nonetheless, especially for their iridescent coloured feathers.

For more about Shetland's endemic species see the Nature in Shetland website: http://www.nature-shetland.co.uk/nature/endemverts.htm
