Thats chimney pots. Just goes to show that you don't always have to travel miles to see a stunning bird. I was on my way out yesterday afternoon to meet Jeff and call in at Woodhorn, Longhirst and Linton. We have a field over the back on which Gull numbers have been steadily increasing. Along with the Gulls more and more Corvids had been joining them on the ground and thinking they were probably Jackdaws and Crows hadn't paid much attention. Anyway a few of these Corvids had landed in the street and looking up i was stopped in my tracks when i noticed they were Rooks. Ive included a few images as they show off so many of there classic features. I especially like the "baggy trousers" and the last shot which i think is a juvenile. Please correct me if i'm wrong.
And my favourite.............a Jackdaw not a juv. ( thanks Alan T.)
