One Cock and a Thousand Crows [EXPLORED]

Last week, I stayed in a hotel in Den Burg, on the Isle of Texel. At dusk, I heard a lot of crows and looking from my balcony I saw dozens of Jackdaws sitting in the Chestnut trees around the church and at the tower. Every 20 seconds or so, a new group of Jackdaws came in, joining the ones that were already there. After 5 minutes or so, a new group came in, flying around the tower and suddenly all birds joined this group and off they went..... Approximately 4,000-5,000 Jackdaws, it was a magnificent view....!!!
