The Raven and the Rabbit’s head

Ravens are so difficult to get close to. Their eyesight is exceptional and they recognise any threat from a great distance. They’re also able to communicate the threat to each other and they will all take to the skies whenever I spot them.

They’re able to talk about objects far away in space and time, just like us.

The only way I’ve been able to observe them is to stay still on the rocks and watch them fly past. Even that is rarely successful as I can see them spot me and change direction.

Today was different, as this Raven came past with a Rabbit’s head in its beak, pursued by an Oystercatcher. It was too busy avoiding the Oystercatcher to pay much attention to me.

They’re astonishing.
