RAVENS AT LAIKENBUIE

Ravensmall

Nairn Birder hopes to improve on this quick snap.

We were first alerted by the cronk cronk sound as the ravens flew over the croft. Yes, either a pair or a single bird has flown by on most days in the last three weeks.  We see plenty of rooks and crows, but the ravens are so much bigger and their primaries are obvious as they soar above us. It is the first time we have seen ravens here having lived near Nairn for over 30 years. This takes the birds identified on the croft to over ninety species.
