Default Albino starling

Had an unusual visitor to the garden in the last few days, a white starling. We have a large number of starlings use the feeders from early spring and it is great entertainment watching the young being fed and then learning to feed themselves but this 'albino' was not among them. We can only assume it has come from another family some distance away as we reckon we have about three or four families visit our feeders. Anyway he/she seems to be quite at home and isn't mobbed by the others although the bird seems to be a bit put off when the crowds of jackdaws are about.

Unusual capture. Would have been nice to see posted at larger size.
