Sychnant Jackdaws, 'Scandinavian features'

There are three with a flock of 54 'normal' looking Jackdaws in a stubble field between Conwy and the the horse riding stables by Sychnant Pass. I only managed a photo of this one below. These are the 8th, 9th and 10th showing Scandinavian features I have found this winter. Must be many more similar looking birds out there.

  1. Nice one Rob interesting that most appear in winter and disappear early spring and your experience up north shows that they do move in and out of the uk. I think there's more to learn about them - most you see are out on fields feeding with roving flocks so not the same as the birds sat on my roof. I think Steve had a resident bird on Anglesey and Elfyn in Criccieth which had similar features so some might remain which is an odd movement and muddies the water a bit as to how WRP are going to assess them or not. You're certainly building up a better picture of numbers out there locally though.
