Jackdaw, Corvus monedula.
First week of July has a special meaning on my seasonal calendar; The Jackdaws, nesting in the chimneys of the school next door. will come here and show off their offspring. These are a lot noisier than the young House Sparrows too.
I think there are 2 of them,
The Rooks, Corvus frugilega too, have been starting to introduce the little one.

LEAVE YOUNG BIRDS BE!!
Please, do not hamper a young bird's life by picking it up, and taking it home with you. It is calling its parents to help them in locating it.
After fledgling from the nest, the parent birds will keep feeding it, and look out for it, until it will be able to look after itself.
And the reason you cannot see a parent is because of your own proxomity to the young bird. And while you are ebating if or not you should take the bird home, you keep the parent from giving it well needed nutrition in the form of a meal!
