Ravens in Aeriel Combat on a Foggy Morning

Hi all 😃 Whilst out in Cumbernauld House Park one misty morning, I’d noticed that there were alot of Ravens about; there were groups of them on the snow, as well as filling the trees. These first shots were taken on my way into the park

On my way back out, the fog had shrouded the land & everything was a lot duller. There was one Raven pecking away at the grass under the snow ignoring the others. A couple of others must have taken umbridge at this & went over to hastle it. There was much raucous squalking & the fight then took to the foggy sky. The aeriel combat was fast moving & constantly changing direction swiftly; hard to follow in low light conditions at the maximum range of my 300mm zoom lens.

Eventually the solitary raven evaded the others by pulling off a sharp mid-air u-turn, & shot off into the fog; while the three of them were flying in a straight line, he basically folded his wings & when he re-opened them was heading in the opposite direction 😲
