The mearest hint of love and spring.

It looks like not all thoughts are on the cold snowy winter. In fact the thoughts of some have been distinctly frisky and of spring!. There have been Ravens cavorting around the house filling the air with sound and tumbling displays of masculinity. A couple of days ago I was watching a raven at some carrion away down the fields. The bird did not last long with its prize before another arrived and forced it to give up its meal. As I watched a third bird arrived. The dominant bird then actually offered the food to the new arrival by dragging it towards her and backing off whilst she ate. Over the last couple of weeks Ravens have been exploring the open roof of the derelict house just up from us. Looks like we might have some nesting action on wur own doorstep to look forwards to!!
