JACKDAW

The Jackdaw is a member of the Crow family and is about two thirds the size of a crow.  The main differences are its paler whiter eye and its glossy silvery coloured head.  The Jackdaws can be seen in town centres, cliffs, farmland, parks and old woodland.  I have seen the Jackdaw in flocks of up to 30 at Fairburn Ings and have seen them at just about every reserve I have visited.  There are currently 500,000 pairs right across the UK.
