Today's garden visitors
Apart from the surprise visit by a Rook today, it seemed to be pretty busy with the regular garden birds including more Corvids and a Robin for MC :) I'm not sure if the shots of the female bullfinch are of two different birds as they certainly look different and we do have at least two pairs...

My Visiting Corvids
Sadly no Ravens, Rooks, Hoodies or Choughs (as if, lol!) but I'm happy to get quite a few Magpies, Jackdaws and Jays visit my garden, with the occasional Carrion Crow too, although the latter never hang around long enough for me to get any decent pics of them. I really do love Corvids. Such beautiful...

Pics from Slimbridge today.
After another couple of rainy days which have softened the ground and raised water levels, I opted for the convenience of hides at Slimbridge, especially as early morning weather reports had snow reported up on the Cotswolds. Welcomed on site by one of the numerous jackdaws. Started with a visit...

Monday's magic moment: fly like a bird

Living in a crow-eat-crow world
Last night, I heard raucous squawks from the garden and went to the window. A carrion crow was sitting on the outer branches of the ash tree, ducking its head as the parent jackdaws divebombed it. As it flew off, I saw what the crow was carrying - a tiny, naked jackdaw chick, yellow beak open. Shortly...
