Offbeat Video

By Randal Coombs


A helpful crow has attempted to clean out a home gutter by pulling out pieces of debris. 

Lisa Smy from Chatteris, Cambridgeshire heard banging noises on her conservatory when she decided to investigate on New Year’s Day, January 1. 

She was left in fits of laughter when she spotted the crow on her neighbours roof. 

The video shows the black crow perched on a gutter as it pulls pieces of debris onto the floor. 

Lisa added: “I heard banging noises on my conservatory roof so went to see what it was.

“I’ve not seen anything like this before, and it went on for about half an hour. 

“He got through about half the length of guttering so didn’t finish the job. 

“It made a right mess of my roof and didn’t clear up after himself so they’ll be no payment from me!”
