  2. Sentinel


    Rather a distant shot this one, more an attempt to zoom in to see what it was sitting on a rather distant neighbour's roof in the next street. I'd not seen one for a bit, but they seem to be coming back again now, but just the odd one.

    Thieving Jackdaw

    a couple of jackdaws singled out the white ones in a herd of fallow deer to 'feather' their nest; the deer slept through it! More blue than grey, this bird.

    Eurasian Jackdaw

    I discovered this when processing some pics of feral pigeons rather aimlessly fired off during a dull interlude, and more or less forgotten about. It was only the pale iris that made the penny drop: this was not an "underexposed pigeon" but a Jackdaw. They hadn't really been on my radar: I...

    Intercepting signals

    I wonder what television programme is his favourite. One of the Jackdaws that have been making virtually daily visits to the dining table this last month or so. Another dull day though. TTTW

    That's close enough

    Jackdaws are always fun to watch, and attractive corvids too. I'm always pleased to see them arrive. These two were on top of my neighbour's roof.

    Finishing up

    This Jackdaw seems to have missed the main breakfast event, just arriving in time to clear up what had been left by the hordes of Starlings and Sparrows etc. TTTW
