Rooks 2

The rooks are building and repairing nests in the rookery on the Old Main Road in Bulcote. The ash tree at the bottom of our garden is a favourite place for collecting nesting material – twigs the thickness of my thumb with lengths not far short of a metre!

This bird has spotted a suitable twig to the left of this picture.

The bird has taken hold of the twig – it’s joined to the tree not far from its left leg.

The bird has the twig in its bill. The place where it was broken off is hidden by the birds tail.

Now the bird has moved, we can see where the twig snapped off the tree.

Now the rook has adjusted the position of the twig so that it is better balanced.

The bird has just taken off from the tree.

And here we see the rook flying back to the rookery with its prize!
