Starling brought down to earth.

Found a dead starling in the road this afternoon. Beautiful green iridescent feathers, so perfect and precise with it's sharp beak and speckled colouration. The last one I found, 2 years ago, got stolen from the back wall by a cat when I wasn't paying attention, this wont happen again as this new find is now secured in my freezer. This specimen is going to be mounted, using my developing taxidermy skills, and will go into a Somerset cabinet artwork.
