Kineton’s favourite bird?

A national poll is underway to find out most popular bird -it’s probably not worth betting against the robin, but – surprisingly – the hen harrier has made it into the top ten shortlist! No doubt this has been fuelled by all the publicity it has recently had re gamekeepers, etc. I’ve seen them in the Trough of Bowland, in deepest Mid Wales and out on the Isle of Islay (where they seemed to be two a penny).
Anyway, what’s Kineton’s favourite bird? I would perhaps suggest the jackdaw – calling, shouting, fluttering around
the churchyard in their friendly, welcoming manner, they seem to define the heart of the village.
