There is a bloke on yutube who has a raven he rescued as a yougster . It flys a bout but always comes back to him . It eats his chips as well .  It will lie on its back in his arms . The affection is so obvious . Very intelligent birds ravens are .  

When we thought it was time they left,we took em down the river at dark one night and put em on and left em too it drove about a mile back home through the village and all 6 of the fu&&ers were on the door step waiting for us

Apparently its Barbery x Peregrine

Close but no cigar for me....didn’t think of it being a cross I just thought is was a pet but if your mate hunts with it he must be a serious falconer...cross a peregrine with a barbery you get a kestrel size hunting machine.🦅

I haven't knowingly seen one since the 60s when one flew into our French window and broke its neck.

Trying to get a decent photo.....but the local Lapwings are back. Missed them for a year or two due to activities in the field.

 

But the whooping was definitely out there... 2 pair by the looks.

 

Pics as soon as I can.

Then hopes are high for the swallows.

 

Light at the end of a very gloomy (winter) tunnel.
