Description:

This was interesting, and in some ways rather sad. This crow was carrying what looks like a sweetcorn cob. It dropped it, and performed some aerial antics in an attempt to retrieve it. Crows can be quick, but not as quick as a falling corn cob.
The cob won, and landed in a field, and the crow landed nearby. It looked at the cob for a while, and, I think, came to the conclusion that it was just too heavy, because it flew off. Pity really, because it had managed to carry it right across the reservoir!
