An extra post.
Today has been a lovely but cold day here. Coming in I got the central heating going and then came to my computer and read your replies - most stimulating so thank you for them. I put the 'new post' back up because my farmer knew that I loved rooks more than any other bird in the world. My back garden backs on to quite a large field and only one more field after that and the lane down to our farm is there. The same rooks that cross my bungalow morning and evening on their way to and from their feeding grounds are the same rooks that crossed the farm each morning and I have always delighted in them. Five minutes ago thousands of rooks rose from the field behind my bungalow - the noise was deafening - and circled overhead - I grabbed my camera but by that time they had gone so you will have to imagine them. But they gave me great joy and I like to think that my farmer somehow had a hand in creating the display.
