30 Days Wild Day 19 - Juvenile Jackdaw
A busy day loomed. I needed to be down near Wigan for an afternoon meeting. This meant leaving at 10:30 to be there for lunch. I also knew the best of the day would be over by the time I got back. So I went with Clickychick for an early morning wander round the estate.
Among thew things which caught my eye was a number of recently fledged Jackdaws (Coloeus monedula) in the trees. A parent flew off as we approached but the young as yet haven't grown very wary. I liked this shot so that's the blip.
I arrived home about 5:00 and within minutes i looked out of the window and saw a pair of Bullfinches gathering seed from the "Geranium" (Cranesbill). For our garden a very rare sight, perhaps once a year. I grabbed a few shots but unfortunately none were of suitable quality. The it started to rain - I knew the best of the day would be over before I had chance for more shots.
