Whenever Sharon and I are out walking in the mountains, one bird that we are always guaranteed to see are Ravens, they are magnificent birds that when looked at closely are beautifully marked, and have a very characteristic call. Whilst we were out walking the Fairfield Horseshoe in The Lake District on Friday, we reached the top of Dove Crag, and a pair of inquisitive or should I say hungry Ravens dropped in to see what was on offer, all we had to hand was a bit of Kendall Mint Cake, which they weren't sure about at first but soon ate it. A few snaps below ...










  1. Wonderful close ups of a magnificent bird Gary.

  2. 'Mint Cake' Ravens in mint condition in their glossy black plumage Gary. Brilliant photography of course.

  3. Superb birds, great set of images, I really like the angle of view on the second image.

  4. Ahhhh kendal mint cake! No photos of that then Gary? :-D

  5. Ahhhh kendal mint cake! No photos of that then Gary? :-D

  7. Beautiful photos - I'd love to have an encounter with a crow or a raven, two of my favorite birds - blue black and smart. Thanks for sharing. I may ask permission to paint one of these sometime - wouldn't do it without full permission, but you've captured a couple of interesting poses here.
