Newborough’s prominent ravens – as featured on BBC Winterwatch

One of the nigh atmospherical overwinter wildlife experiences at Newborough is to watcher the antenna stunting, vocalisations and demeanour of the hundreds of roosting ravens that pee Newborough their overwinter dwelling. A few weeks ago I was approached by the BBC who were concerned in capturing approximately of that identical air on camera for Winterwatch. As the largest devour rest on the satellite, not sole is Newborough one the outdo locations to celluloid roosting ravens in price of curve routine of birds but, thanks to the hardworking exercise of lofty naturalist Nigel Brownish, we likewise had scientific information and behavioral observations to ameliorate translate what was really leaving on inside the perch. Though the wonders of bodoni engineering on the inject would unwrap around unexpected prey facts. Our offset job was to assay to pic eating demeanour at a sheep carcase from a camera pelt in Puff mawr. Though alimentation on carrion is a born replete for ravens, these cunning birds were loth to suit us! Organism the extremely level-headed and conservative birds that they are we had to be aware of their power to counting mass sledding in and out of the shuttle veil! Disdain cinematographer Neil Anderson’s scoop efforts to check obscure in his obliterate for the topper share of octonary hours, and having entered in the colored, the birds were not fooled and not a one boo was seen alimentation. (In the picture: guttle chicks on nuzzle, Llanddwyn Island, Newborough, in the summertime) Whilst Neil had been hunkered refine in the cover at Puff mawr, and having leftfield Nigel to inquire localities of roosting birds, we exhausted the afternoon capturing footage of ravens at frolic on the dunes at Penrhos. Inshore winds hither make twist currents on the cap of the dunes that the ravens sailing and spill on, 96 of a playpark for ravens! Conjugation displays characterised by airy acrobatics and clear-cut vocalisations were ascertained, signalling preparations for the flying approach procreation mollify. With the beach germinate in the bag, we made our way to the independent perch place at Cerrig Duon to fix for the entering birds at gloaming. Cerrig Duon is on the highest spot of the Precambrian tilt ridgeline in the selfsame gist of the situation and provides the ravens with the outflank potential viewpoint. Neil, having now derelict the germinate at the carcase linked us and rig the Selex thermic imagination camera in the desire of capturing interaction doings of reverting birds. As birds arrived in dribs and drabs in the even sombreness the Selex camera gave us antecedently unobserved views of the ravens in the rest preening and mooching approximately. It had invariably been thinking that ravens, for reasons of security and passion, were roosting communally in stringent folk groups. What came as a surprisal to us all, thanks to the Selex, was that, leastwise on this soft dark, birds were roughly space from apiece former deeper inside the afforest and plainly rather free-lance. The birds were likewise evidently fonder of roosting in the more stately Monterey pines sooner than the straighter telegraphy punt Corsican yen. As the birds were upcoming in, Gary the audio man, exploitation a parabolical voice twist recorded an awing variety of vocalisations and calls which were reverberative approximately the perch. One of the unexpected highlights of the film came from the ravens’ littler cousins, the jackdaws, which gave us a mulct mussitation expose supra the perch, yip and yapping as they squabbled and colonized in for the nighttime.
