Rarely spotted albino jackdaw

1 post in this topic

A rarely spotted albino jackdaw has been sighted at heritage gardens in Carmarthenshire.

The pure white visitor was snapped at the weekend by the head gardener at Aberglasney Gardens, Llangathen, who at first thought it was a dove.

The RSPB says albinism only occurs when a bird inherits the gene from both parents.

Survival rates for albino jackdaws, normally black, tend to be lower and so they are only rarely seen.
