A rare albino jackdaw has been killed by other black-feathered jackdaws in the gardens of an historic house in Carmarthenshire.The bird, called Gwyn, was the first ever seen at Aberglasney Gardens.
But Gwyn - whose name means "white" in Welsh - may have been attacked by other birds because of his colour.He was found on a path in the grounds of Aberglasney Gardens by staff.
Head gardener Joseph Atkin said: "Apparently, it is quite common for other birds to turn on albinos like this - but it was just very unfortunate. I don't think Gwyn was very strong anyway because of being a fledgling albino."
Actor Damian Lewis will be at Aberglasney Mansion today for the official opening of the restored ground floor of the historic building. The Emmy Award-winning star will be guest of honour as the Aberglasney Restoration Trust shows off its work to reinstate the house to its former grandeur.
The grade II* listed building's east wing and main hall are the latest sections to be repaired.
