Crows enjoying the strong winds around Wollaton Hall's turrets. They seemed to be drawn to the lightning conducter and would grab hold in their beaks before attempting to grip with feet. Jackdaws would perch on the stone ball pinnacles occasionally. Their aerobatics were great to watch and gave the impression they were just having fun in the wind.

Impression from memory. The white rumps really glowed as they flashed into cover.
It was great to see 2 Immature Pintail (I think) on the lagoon with a good selection of Ducks, Lapwings, Gulls and numerous Herons.
The Pintail looked overall a biscuit brown colour with dark sepia back. Its bill was most distinctive showing steel-blue and black.
Heron preening, Pintail upending.
