13/01/18 Winter’s dawn chorus of ravens, owls, crows and buzzards at Stapleton Wood.

I went to sit in the wood on a cold January morning from 7:15-8:15am to listen to the activity in the bleak midwinter.   It was fascinating and beautiful.  I have included some fragments from that session here.

The ravens were first on the scene, croaking their way across the sky; seemingly often in pairs.   The tawny owls chimed in a little later (though, they had perhaps been at it all night long anyway!).  Some noisy crows followed.  And then the buzzards – and they were particularly animated that morning.

As is often the case with the dawn chorus, it seemed most of the time that they all graciously take turns.
