ROOKS WATCHING ME WHEN I COME OUT OF THE HOUSE!

These past few days I have been fed up of rooks getting some of the bird food I put out.

To outwit them I put some grated and cheese on the ground in the hedgerow in our garden.  I have seen this part of the hedge bottom being used by blackbirds.  They seem to use it as a ‘hedgeway road’ into our garden as I see them walk into the garden there.  Does that make sense?

I was only there one minute and I quickly threw some birdfood and cheese into the hedgebottom.

Within a minute 6 or 7 rooks descended from the sky to this exact same place and ravenously ate all the bird food!   I have never ever seen rooks in this hedge bottom before.

They must have been watching me from their treetop perches.  They must connect me with birdfood!
