Carrion Crow Corvus corone


 

The Carrion and Hooded Crows are ubiquitous across the whole of Europe into Asia. The Carrion Crow has always been a common species in all the islands in the Bailiwick, including the smaller islets of Lihou and Jethou. In 1946, there is even a record of a nest situated on Les Etacs off Alderney before Gannets occupied the rocks in large numbers.

Carrion Crows can be seen in most habitats across the islands. They were found breeding in 16 of the 22 squares in the 1989-91 Guernsey Breeding Bird Census and were common in farmland, woodland and large gardens. In winter, numbers are swelled by migrants and flocks of up to 100-200 birds can be found, especially in the areas around Fauxquet Valley and the Reservoir. Smaller flocks of between 50-100 birds are common on beaches where they feed amongst piles of vraic that have accumulated.
