Hi all

I went out early last night for a couple of hours with my lanber 12g and managed to get a couple of woodies and what looks like a crow .

As i've mainly shot ground game over the years with rifles , i am quite new to bird shooting and was therefore wondering if this is a young crow or a rook .

Sorry about the picture quality but i had to use my mobile ,

young carrion crow mate.

i came accross 2 of them that couldnt fly when walking the other day, needless to say a ran them down and ringed there necks! much easier to do that than try to catch up with them when they can fly!
