Our rooks are very timid and will disappear if they see anybody watching them, so I have to creep around to get any photos. They do come down to the bird table though, especially if we put out bread or left over fruit cake! They're also quite partial to a mince pie!!
I looked up the collective noun for rooks and there are a few, including a building, parliament, clamour and storytelling. You have to love collective nouns!
