We first heard rumours that ravens had arrived in the locality last winter and sightings through the spring and summer confirmed a resident presence. As summer started to turn to Autumn a few weeks ago the calls of ravens in the air began to become a regular occurrence around the village and out on a walk one day we spotted one calling from a stand of trees to the East. A few days later, armed with microphones, I set out in the late afternoon to see if I could achieve a recording. Microphones set up in the woods we waited and were blessed with some raucous calling as the ravens (we think three) settled in for the night.
