    • The Starlings Bath

      Saw these starlings squabbling over a bath in our Frog supported birdbath and captured the moment on my mobile. Starling populations have declined seriously (by over 70%) in recent times and are on the Red List of birds of high conservation concern. There are several causes of this decline: changes in farming practices, changes in grassland management, loss of invertebrate food through the use of pesticides, fewer nesting sites in urban areas owing to household improvements and poorer survival rates among young birds. The Starling has the reputation for being one of the noisiest and most gregarious garden birds,, as can be seen/heard in this short. The Starling's plumage is mainly blackish with buff edged wing feathers and reddish-brown legs. However in the winter it has distinctive white speckles above and below. The sexes are alike though the male has fewer speckles on the rump and wings. The bill is dark grey-brown during the winter. The speckles disappear through the course of the winter and by the spring the plumage becomes predominantly iridescent with green and purple. The colour of the base of its quite long yellow beak is different in males and females - it is pink for girls and blue for boys. In flight, Starlings have pointed, triangular wings and fly fast and direct. When they come in to land they look a little like Harrier aircraft with slightly drooped triangular wings. Starlings are great at mimicry, with examples including machines, such as telephones and car alarms, and other birds such as curlews and Pied Wagtails. Consequently, it's difficult to know what their song is other than a medley of squeaks, clicks and whistles. Starlings seem to feed on just about anything: insects, worms, snails, berries, fruit, scraps, suet. However, they feed only invertebrates - not "junk" food - to their young. The male builds the nest from grass in a hole in a wall, tree or building, but the female lines it with feathers, wool and moss. The male may decorate the nest with leaves and petals in order to deter parasites and improve his chances of attracting a mate. Starlings seem to have an insatiable appetite and will eat just about anything from anywhere - except starling proof feeders - and throw much of it about while they are at it! Further, they feed in flocks and so several birds are usually feeding in this lively manner, which is a sight to behold.

                Rural Export | Julia Wilmott | www.juliawilmott.com Videography | Richard Johnston | www.richiejohnstonline.com Actor | Tom Kitching Artist statement: This project was made over a period of 6 months and involved the invention of a cheese, made from the iconic Lakeland Herdwick sheep. The Herdwick sheep had not been milked for dairy production before, as they are upland grazing animals and the milk is suckled by their young. The work was selected by LICA Gallery, Lancaster and a team of curators for the C-Art 2013 show. Cheese matured in exhibition, and was presented to the community it was made in, and eaten. The Short Film 'Rural Export' that accompanied the installation of cheese at the C-Art 2013 selected show, plays with Lakeland archetypes. The film unfolds as a man dressed in chef whites ascends England's highest mountain in a futile attempt to play darts. Having herself experienced that seeing a chef in whites is a far more common site in the valley than seeing a farmer, Julia deliberately uses a farmer to act as chef; challenging the notion of the rural and emphasising the reality of many farmers being forced to diversify to make a living.
