Corvid Roost

Saturday 28th January
 A pre-dawn walk with the dog this morning took us in the direction of some noisy
birds calling where we found a roost of c300 Corvids. They were cramped together
high in a tree and occasionally lifted as one into the slowly brightening sky making it dark
again. I am guessing the majority were Carrion Crows but there were probably
Rooks and maybe Jackdaws among them. Quite a sight as they lifted and circled then
returning to the trees, they began to fly away in small groups of around 10, no doubt for
their feeding areas during the day.
