raven's moor

Ravens are the largest of the crow family. They have a bluish tinge to their intensely black feathers, large heads and throat feathers. They often are seen in pairs (as here)

They like open moorland where sheep and other livestock are to be found because it is easy for them to find carrion to feed off.

They have a distinctive low pitched cry (described as prruk prruk) and a silhouette in flight, which is very similar to the buzzard.
