Record number for me at this site; three very high over the recreational ground calling and interacting with one another. I was first alerted to their presence by the resident Carrion Crow which went crazy flying into the tree and then I heard the distinctive call and looked up at saw three individuals very high up in the sky. I've had a few sightings at this ground, generally few and far between however I've heard them more than I've seen them. always such a pleasure to behold these magnificent Corvids.
