Crow Trap!

With decent numbers of corvids roosting in the Blackdale Woods on campus (recent estimates being 1300 birds involving 60% Jackdaw, 30% Rook and 10% Carrion Crow per LON) A few of us spent Friday morning making a crow trap to see if we can catch a few!

It only took an hour or so and there's still a bit of work to do before its finished but hopefully it will work. The design is slightly more 'heligoland' than traditional crow trap, the idea being that birds can be driven to end of the funnel and extracted.
