  • Stunning Sunset and Cawing Crows

    This particular location tends to be a good place to spot some fantastic sunsets. There were no real reddy hues, but the sunset was a bright yellowy gold instead. I could hear the crows flying over, and had a feeling they were heading to their favourite trees. Most of them were already perched on a…

    Morning Cloudscapes and Bird Feeding….

    The weather was looking quite promising this morning, like it wanted to make sure that 30 days wild ended with sunshine! During the morning, it clouded over a bit more, but that didn’t deter the flock of crows that has been flying over on a regular basis. You wouldn’t believe how loud they can be – I’m…

  • Synchronised …. flying?

    Synchronised …. flying?

    I’ve seen flocks of pigeons flying in a tight-knit formation quite often, but it’s not that common to see a flock of crows flying together. You could hear them long before you could see them, and I do wonder where they were heading! A little while later, two crows returned and were swooping and diving…

  • It’s a day for preening

    I will admit that I’ve never spotted crows preening before, so I was surprised that these two were just happily perched like this on a nearby roof for quite so long. #30dayswild

  • A Murder of Crows

    The noise that accompanied the 12 Crows was intense – I can see why they’d be known as a Murder! #30dayswild

  • Crows

    I need to read up on how to differentiate between the Crow family – I think this is a Carrion Crow, but I’m not too sure! #30dayswild

  • A Meal Fit for a Crow

    When you think of a garden house-style bird feeder, you think of small birds flying into it to get the food. The local larger birds have other ideas,with a seagull sitting on the top of the feeder, trying to figure out how to get in! The gull didn’t manage it, but the local crows proved…

  • Just a Couple of Crows

    Just a Couple of Crows

    I know there’s a large population of seagulls that live nearby – any time the Buzzard flies overhead, there’s usually several gulls flying below it, along with a couple of crows. I hadn’t realised, however, that quite so many crows seemed to call this neighbourhood home…. There wasn’t anything apparent that had spooked them – no…

  • Synchronised…. sunbathing?

    Synchronised…. sunbathing?

    For a few years now, a local Blackbird has come into the garden and flopped onto the grass for some sunbathing – it’s not something I’ve ever understood, but the Blackbird seems to adore it. However, it’s not something I’ve ever seen any other birds doing…. until today. Two crows seemed to be sunbathing on the…
