Hybrid Hoodie


A look at the sea this lunchtime from Baker's Score off Corton was very disappointing despite the long hoped for Northerly winds with absolutely nothing moving during the 15 minute observation.
As I was driving to work along the coast road between Corton & Hopton, I noticed a small group of Carrion Crows feeding near the roadside in the Corton M.O.D. field and one of them was a hybrid Hooded Crow X Carrion Crow which fed face on showing a black throat/ bib and dark grey breast the back was virtually black and I estimated that the bird was about 1/4 Hoodie, 3/4 Carrion Crow.
Pictured is a pure Hooded Crow from Lesvos.
