Ravens over the forest January

suddenly we take Ravens for granted in North Lincs but it is pertinent to recall that the species is a very recent addition to the local avifauna; one at Donna Nook in 1980 was the first for decades and there were no more until the late 1990's -- to put things in perspective I twitched my first birds for my Lincs list near Grantham on November 8th 2003 -- Raven became my 332nd species in Lincs -- thats a lot of rare birds before Raven -- heard this pair approaching today as I was photographing a flock of Crossbills and as the sun was full out they flew right over my head about 40 feet up -- amazing morning
