Despite its evil reputation in folklore, I am always very happy to see a raven. So was Charles Dickens who kept one as a pet and featured it in his novel Barnaby Rudge.
Ravens are one of the most prevalent species in the north but rather rare in our area although numbers are increasing.
We saw one this morning at Humber Bay.
Humber Bay scenes:
Thought you’d be interested in this video on the new Portlands development Miles. Maybe we’ll be birding there one day,
The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky. – William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
