Sturnus vulgaris

Starling - Most common around towns and villages. Starlings walk rather than hop. Their flight is quite strong and direct, they look triangular-winged and short-tailed in flight. Quite famous for their gathering in tens of thousands to give mesmerising displays before roosting. These images were taken around Counties Leitrim and Sligo.
