Raven nest, Pendeford Mill LNR

Raven nest, Pendeford Mill LNR

Ravens often nest on inaccessible ledges on cliffs, but such sites are conspicuous by their absence in the west midlands. The alternative is high in a tall tree, as here on the Pendeford Mill LNR, right in the midst of the heronry. One of the adult ravens is half-visible over the rim of the nest. The other was flying in and out of the nest, presumably gathering food.
