This is a series of photos that I took this morning as dawn broke, the slight differences in the skyline are accounted for by me rushing up and downstairs - some are taken out on the terrace, some are done by me hanging out of the bedroom window at rather alarming angles! They are in the order in which I took them,there must have been slight differences in the angles of the light which accounts for the sky appearing to go from deep to light then back to dark colours.I missed what would have been the best shot as a big flock of black rooks flew over and were silhouetted against the pink sky. Maybe tomorrow I'll get that one. It's one of my favourite things on a winter morning - the swirl of wings and the cawing of the huge flocks of rooks as they call to one another on the way to the day's feeding grounds. It always seems to me a quintessentially English sight and sound. Even better is the evening flight as they come in from all directions to roost in the woods - the noise in incredible. I often walk there as dusk is falling in winter just to see and hear them.
