Raven In Flight by nitsch Raven In Flight by nitsch
Most people go to Gigrin because of the Red Kite population but one shot I really wanted to come away with was a Raven in flight so I'm happy with this one!

Enjoy! :)

From the RSPB:

Raven - Corvus corax

The raven is a big black bird, a member of the crow family. It is massive, bigger than a buzzard. It is all black with a large bill, and long wings. In flight, it shows a diamond-shaped tail. It breeds in the west and north only. Most birds are residents, but some birds, especially non-breeders and young birds wander from their breeding areas but do not travel far.

Well done on capture all the details of a black bird, that's surely a challenge with a nice bright sun shinning on them.
