We have a family of jackdaws living in our kitchen chimney. When my wife, who works in the kitchen, is busy with her online students, she is frequently distracted by the noise of the chicks as one or other of their parents arrives back with whatever it is jackdaws eat. It is a cheerful racket, but the locals tell us that if we plan to light a fire this winter we have a problem on our hands and may have to issue an eviction notice with effect from the middle of June.
