Probably nothing, but I had a brief glimpse from the bus this morning of a Jackdaw on Cattedown roundabout with a pale hood and very obvious white patches around the collar (mostly toward the front). Probably just at the extreme end of what juv British Jackdaw can show but way beyond anything I have seen before. Looking at pics on the internet there seem to be monedula with much less striking patches....... The bird was not dissimilar to the top pic here but I only saw it for a couple of seconds. Might be worth a look if anyone is passing.
