/ how to keep starlings away from bird table ?
Play a starling distress call? Dunno if starlings speak blackbird, obviously I should though.
Just shoot the bastards.
It's often forgotten that starlings give us,arguably, our finest wildlife spectical - the mass gatherings prior to roosting in winter.
To the OP put the feed in a hedge - blackbirds like it in there starlings don't.
Your blackbirds should manage to find enough natural food on their own, so I wouldn't think supplementary feeding is essential anyway. More important to make sure you keep the local cat population away, and likewise discourage any magpies, jays etc. from coming too close - easier said than done at 5.00am!
No idea how to keep the starlings at bay though.

Yes .177 is just as good at culling them as .22. It's not powerful enough, however, to kill Ospreys
