Are Jackdaws on the Increase?

I live in Aberdeen, Scotland and I have noticed over recent years that the dawn chorus has changed from the usual "cawing" of the crows and rooks to the very distinctive "Chuck-chuck" of the Jackdaw. Their are still the odd "caws" within the chorus but they are greatly outnumbered by the "chuck-chucks."

Are the Jackdaw numbers on the increase or can anyone else say that they have noticed this change?

I get more flying over these

I get more flying over these days than I used too and we're in Warwickshire.

Probably they're not getting persecuted so much
