Hi Dieter. We have investigated your issue finding the Hooded Crow (Corvus cornix) in the species list.

This common tern was angry against a rival. There's a small tern colony at the grand canal dock that's largely unsuccessful. Last year it was raided by scumbag-kids who wanted to swim there. The old b...View More
