New Year’s Day was bright and not so breezy and there was plenty of activity around the rookery. About 250 rooks were present with a few jackdaws, perhaps ten.
The rooks were back and forth between the rookery and the neeps field where they were feeding with common gulls.
At about 3.00 p.m. the rooks left, flying high south-east in ones and twos and small, loose groups. At the moment they’re not roosting here and haven’t done so since early autumn.
