Well, I think there are five birds in the furthest tree, three at the top and two bigger birds lower down. What they are really is a guessing game. The bigger ones could be Buzzards, but given the setting they could also be Cormorants. The three smaller birds - not that small - could be crows of some sort. Come to that the other two could be Ravens .

You can only choose one species, Tony.

Duh, ok then. Cormorants seem most likely. But really I have no way of telling from this picture, and it still looks like 3 little 'uns and two big' uns .
