Sample of what I was cleaning during my latest Bussines Days. I’ve not included many but I should post about them til the end of school year. From left to right:

-male Mallard (Anas platyrynchos) – he was a roadkill in nice condition so I also keept his whole skin

– Herrring gull (Larus argentatus) – one of my 3 beachcombed herrings while my Winter Sea Trip; I was cleaning them since february – they’re skulls was the most problematic ones for me so far, but more about them in upcoming post

-Red fox (Vulpes vulpes) – found naturally cleaned with some mumified flesh on it on city boundaries – it has imperfection but I haven’t shown them here

-Woodpigeon (Columba palumbus) – found under a tree, no idea what could caus his death

– Jackdaw (Corvus monedula) – victim of glass acoustic screens found the same day when my two sparrowhawks

– Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) – you can see his feathers here

Hawfinch (Coccothraustes coccothraustes)

– obtained in a trade with @waxygrave

-Great egrett (Egretta alba) – bird from this post

-Water vole (
Arvicola amphibius) – found by the side of the road, didn’t look like roadkill tho; not sure why it died, maybe poisoning
