These birds, of the crow family, was very rare in Scotland. If my memery don´t fail me this location was the only one they stayed in and there were no more then about 100 birds. We had a local guide guiding us to them.

A lot of ravens in the sky. What all the fuss was about I don´t know. Seemed to be something on the other side of the forest.

The Cranes are gathering in huge flocks now. This is a few of them I found at Kvismare Nature Reserve the other day. Soon they will be heading south.
