last week on one of the dry days we had I sat outside a cafe for a coffee and ths bird was very friendly and not at all scared of people. I had my camera but unfortunatly had it set on a high ISO so a little grainy.
As I no nothing about birds, I posted mainly to find out the type of bird as the photo is no great shakes lol.

Could be a young Starling, but I'd simply call him Dickie

They usually do at this time of year (at least around here).
They'll be back in huge numbers when my apples are ripe.
