Colin, very nice selection of shots. Ravens are amazing birds, smart and wonderful to watch and listen to - - cruck, cruck!

Yes there was tons of deep, guttural croaking

The Choughs were really playful.
In the past I've also watched a pair of Ravens playing in the updraft by a cliff, diving, rolling, tumbling and soaring, just for the sheer hell of it.

Yesterday I went out looking for birds. There weren't many around but did see a small flock rise up from the wetlands. When I got home, I looked at the picture (only one, no high speed fps here) and realized they were Starlings, not one of my favorite birds. Oh well...

Colin, very nice raven and chough photos.  I always enjoy watching crows (and the occasional raven - though not so common around here) and am pleased when I get photos which show their "personalities".  I've watched many birds who seem to be thoroughly enjoying the things they're able to do aloft - soaring, diving, drifting and chasing one another.  I envy them.  It looks like great fun!  Cheers, John
