The Rook in Darley Dale

One of the first avian signs of Spring is activity in the local rookeries. My impression is that the number of Rooks nesting locally in Darley Dale is stable, which is a similar status to elsewhere in Derbyshire. There are four small rookeries in the village;
Seven nests at the Red House Riding Stables,
Five nests at Darley Dale Station,
Twelve nests at St Helen's Church, and
Seven nests by the A6 at the northern edge of the village.
