    This is on one of the pergola supports near our French windows
    Not seen one like this before, having difficulty identifying it.
    Any ideas?

        Thanks for that, we have had some starlings and they had their young on the fence and were feeding them a couple of weeks back. This must have been one of them that's got bigger. Hasn't got its distinctive markings yet.
