Over the years the number of jackdaws flocking to roost in woodland trees immediately to the west of Felmersham has dramatically increased. They arrive just before dusk during the late autumn and winter months and roost high in the trees. However before settling down for the night they form large flocks, wheeling, turning and swooping in unison whilst at the same time being very vocal. This video shows the jackdaws giving their aerobatic display with the Felmersham skyline in the foreground. Felmersham church clock strikes 5 during the video.

 
  Jackdaws congregating on the church tower, at sunrise, before setting off to spend the day feeding.
