Crow Wars

Beautiful in Centenary Woodland this morning with increased sunlight levels warming the ground, it will be interesting to see what plants come through naturally, for now it's mainly planted Spanish Bluebell and we will eradicate these and replace with Hyacinthoides non-scripta (English Bluebell)
Birds were in fine song, especially Wrens and Robins-

and crows were frantic as they battled for supremacy; Jays, Jackdaws, Magpies and Carrion Crows fought arial battles and chattered incessantly, cavorting and caroling on top of the woodland.

More cutting work today from the guys and gals from PAWS (People and Wildlife Service)


Remains, looks like a Sparrowhawk attack
