Who's a pretty boy then ?

There are loads of "pretty" bird species about but i do have a soft spot for Rooks. There mugs are full of character to my (tiny) mind and all very different. When i call by Killy Lakes i always walk up to the roundabout before the shopping centre to see if there are any knocking about.  This fella was captured at Gretna while JOHN and i waited for a murmuration.


  1. I love images that make you smile Mel.

  2. Great photo! Love that cross-eyed look ....

  3. I am sure i had three like that at my door on Halloween !!!
    A great pose.

  4. When I was very young, we had a rookery at the end of the garden. The owner of the land cut down the trees and I found it difficult to get to sleep properly for some weeks without their evening 'cawrus'.

  5. ......and cross beaked Phil.
    I keep looking across at "wor lass" for some reason Joe. I wonder if she was in Holywell Village on Halloween?
    I can see where you are coming from Andrew. We got flooded out in June and i immediately missed "our" House Sparrows.......and still will umtil the end of January when we get back.

  6. John,

    very good shot. Definitely better than mine as yours show his "good side".


  7. You must have captured the back of his head then.

  8. Better looking than a few people I know!
