Rooks nest-building

March 14th, 2010 · No Comments

The rookery next to the Old Main Road in Bulcote is a hive of activity at the moment, with lots of nest building going on. The ash tree at the bottom of our garden is a favourite source of nesting material for the rooks, which come and break off quite large twigs. I managed to capture a sequence of pictures in the late afternoon sunshine today, showing a rook selecting and breaking off a long twig before flying off with it. The sequence can be viewed here.
