Couldn't sharpen the lens enough to make out the name - but a sea-going trawler by the look of her. Photo taken from the high lookout over Garelochead.

Then, that strange water-beastie was followed up by a small vessel in similar livery - again no identifier. Sigh...

That little tug had been attending the trip of this peculiar rig. Couldn't track it I'm afraid, so... any guesses? Deep sea cable maintenance maybe?

Yup, that builders' plastic trash was these jackdaws' treasure! Lining the nest with plastic makes it wind-proof, damp-proof and a little more permanent. That the gathered straw was readily abandoned on seeing this trove shows that there were recognition and learning. It was a deliberate choice of the birds. 



(I do love my jackdaw couple. We've been together for four years now. They had been using my chimney pot... but after last year's upgrade and capping, I thought they may have gone. Boy was I glad to see them here again.)
