Jackdaws – forty years ago in my nature notebooks

Forty years ago I was on holiday with my family. I still remember the thrill of my mum calling me to say there were birds just outside the window of the self-catering flat we had in Tenby in South Wales. Jackdaws! Jackdaws as close as close could be, on the rear balcony. I watched them for an age, entranced. Here’s the entry I made in my nature notebooks when I was age twelve:

Today I’m in Dartmouth in South Devon and there they are; a group of Jackdaws. I’m still entranced by them
