Great Skua

Good memories from a recent trip over to Handa Island on the West Coast. I’ll be visiting there again.

The Ravens

Two of the chicks had left the nest a couple of days ago. I went back yesterday and the nest was empty. It was fun watching these dudes grow up. First time I’ve ever spent time with ravens. They’re playful, intelligent, and considerate. I know they’re considerate because the parents recognised me and would thank me for the food I brought. They’ve repaid me with some amazing photographs I’ve waited a long time to get.

Here we have the two remaining chicks thinking about leaving, and Paw Raven posing for the camera.
