    Think that's a hooded crow packy, crow's are one of my favourite bird's they're very clever
    I know what you mean about the common seagulls we get them swooping down at us when they've got chick's, they're a nuisance but it's probably our fault with all the junk food takeaway rubbish we leave lying around, they've adapted and humans means food

    A few from Sunday morning, i went to Skreen early but i was again caught out by the tide so i couldn't walk the beach, i was trying out a new toy, a one legged tripod called a monopod, to see would it steady my hands a bit. it's a bit cumbersome when trying to capture birds in flight as it's attached to the camera when i raise it for a shot, lots more practice required i think, i didn't get too much wildlife but i did manage to catch a lovely sunrise.

    Picked some more Wild Berries before Breakfast this morning from my garden to have with my Cereal.
    As I picked them 8 Redwing flew over me.
    Then on my local patch with Ruby Roo after Breakfast that dot in the other photo is one of the local Peregrines. A Female Sparrowhawk joined him
    Briefly.
    Also dozens more Redwing were passing through and 7 Crossbill also flew over calling.
