Rose-coloured Starling
Sturnus Roseus
Remarkably there have now been four records of this rarity on Severnside. I was lucky enough to find the first record, a juvenile, at New Passage on 2nd September 2004 and to be just a few hundred metres away from the second record, a first summer bird, when it was found at Severn Beach on 10th June 2012. The 3rd record, another juvenile was found in Severn Beach in September 2018 and the 4th record, another juvenile frequented Northwick Warth for several days in August 2020. Below are some digiscope images of the sandy juvenile bird and some better quality images of the Severn Beach “Pink” individual.
