Basking in the winter sun…

Not quite. It’s still close to freezing, and most of the birds are fluffed up to maximise their insulation – the great-tit and starling are barely recognisable. Still, there was a lot of wildlife in evidence this afternoon, including a red kite hunting and a song-thrush feasting on sloes. The large black bird on an aerial looks like the one that visited our bird-table recently, but I don’t know how to tell whether it’s a crow (Corvus corone) or a juvenile rook (C. frugilegus).
