Return of the Ravens

Not a gothic band or dubious bankers - THE BIRDS!
On the news yesterday was a report that Ravens, which had spread from the West Country, Wales, the Lake District and Scotland into the more heavily populated areas to the South and East, had finally set up base in Kent, near the white cliffs of Dover. A pair of Ravens succesfully nested last year and have two bambinos! :)
Well done the Ravens.
  The definitive description comes from the Royal society of Birds:
The raven is a big black bird, a member of the crow family. It is massive, bigger than a buzzard. It is all black with a large bill, and long wings. In flight, it shows a diamond-shaped tail. It breeds in the west and north only. Most birds are residents, but some birds, especially non-breeders and young birds wander from their breeding areas but do not travel far.
