How many starlings can you get in a bird-bath?

Starlings

This group of mostly juvenile starlings have been regularly bathing and drinking here for some time now, with so much splashing that I need to use a hose to keep re-filling the bird-bath from a nearby water butt.  They obviously need water, but I’m not sure why they prefer a crowded dustbin lid to any other local source.

Starlings
Starling numbers have fallen in recent years, but I’m lucky that these entertaining birds will readily come to my garden feeders – I could watch them for hours.
I put up one of Vine House’s fat ball rings, and waited for the inevitable mayhem. I wasn’t disappointed.Starlings
