Rosy Starling sighting Map

Just a few known sighting locations for the Rosy Starling since its arrival in Aberavon. Early days in what might become a prolonged stay, the clusters suggest Jersey Court and the roundabout next to Texaco garage along The Princess Margaret Way are the best bets to try for this bird. It was seen to drop behind houses, into gardens, just across the road (east) from the petrol station early afternoon yesterday and was out of sight for some time. It can be surprisingly elusive around here when not feeding on the grassy areas in the vicinity of the roundabout.
Today, the bird was seen feeding on the roundabout at 11:20 by MCP.

Wide ranging at and North of the black spot (roundabout)this pm also on a grassy area - go around the rear of Texaco and take the first left - grassy area on right after 50M and also regularly on rooves of houses to the back of car park.
