Raven - Bent Lane

Glorious sunshine this morning but just 2°C on the moor and rather icy first thing, with snow visible on the higher slopes above Stanege Edge. 
Not many birds about but I caught this Raven flying over the dead bracken on the edge of the moor. It has clearly just eaten with extended crop and still with some blood on the bill. It's a difficult bird to photograph being all black but with the sun on it and a coloured background the feather detail shows up nicely.

  1. These are superb, Andy - thanks so much for sharing! As you say, they are a difficult bird to capture well, and you've certainly managed that here. I hear and see ravens daily up in Sheldon, but I have yet to get a decent shot of one...
