Violet Backed Starling

The violet-backed starling (Cinnyricinclus leucogaster), also known as the plum-coloured starling or amethyst starling, is a relatively small species of starling. One of the most striking of the world’s 114 starling species, male amethysts are clad in a deep violet set off by a brilliant white breast.  In the sunlight, they are, like most starlings, as iridescent as any hummingbird. This strongly sexually dimorphic species is found widely in the woodlands and savannah forest edges of mainland sub-Saharan Africa. It is rarely seen on the ground, but instead commonly found in trees and other sources away from the ground.

Happy Birthday Plum

Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was born 15 October, 1881 in Guildford, Surrey. Known as “Plum” to friends and fans. Writer of novels, short stories, lyrics, poems and articles. Two well known series of books and stories are Jeeves and Wooster and those about the goings on at Blandings Castle. Argument continues unceasing between fans which is the better series. I have my favourite but I dearly love everything this man has written. From the early school stories through to his last unfinished novel about Blandings, posthumously published as “Sunset at Blandings”. A book he was working on the day he passed away - Valentine’s Day, 1975 at the age of 93.

Wodehouse is beloved the world over. Fans have created appreciation societies all over the globe. He has been translated into many languages and adaptations of his stories have appeared in film (Silent and sound), theatre, radio and TV. Beloved by many fans, including my self, is the Granada Television series Jeeves and Wooster (1990-1993) Staring Stephen Fry as Jeeves and Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster.

Happy Birthday Plum. I will raise a glass to you while reading a story or two today in your memory and to the world you created. May the sun never set on the world of Wodehouse.
