This individual shows some characteristics of the Russian Jackdaw ssp. soemmerrengii being very dark/black underneath and strong neck collar..will have to try and get some decent photos tomorrow..if its still about.

No pictures, the bird was flying past me, but it was close enough for the white on the head and collar to scream out at you.
