What better way to spend a bank holiday Friday than by nest finding/monitoring and pulli ringing with ASBO Howells (voted Ebbw Vale's top nest finder three years in a row, apparently), Poppa Howells and Monkey Man Griffiths? Especially when it involves these blighters:
|Five Raven chicks (or as Monkey Man described them "little big f***ers") ringed, |
bring the Partnerships Raven total to... well, five... (their feet are huge!)
|Monkey Man Griffiths can just be seen behind the |
tree that supports the nest, while ASBO and Facey
get ready to bling some ravens, Ebbw Style.
|A reasonably intelligent look; from the Raven!|
|ASBO's face says it all; excellent day's ringing with a|
top bird. Ravens chicks are pudgy little buggers!
