Jackdaw

This very approachable Jackdaw was one of several loitering around beaches last week looking for an easy meal. Easy to dismiss birds like Jackdaws, but good light shows tones that are easily missed.

Thanks Paul - it's certainly good for my purposes, and the versitility is the real plus point.
