BIRDS 77 – CARRION CROW

 

 

Carrion Crow

Carrion Crow around the cliffs west of West Bay, Dorset; 21 April 2015.

A large, intelligent and opportunistic killer and scavenger, widespread in pairs across Britain – and as much at home around these wild crags as in the soft and leafy suburbs of Bristol.

And the rocks?  These are the honey-coloured cliffs of Dorset’s renowned Jurassic Coast – beautiful certainly, but with a dangerous beauty all the same, for these fossil-filled rocks are very loose and prone to collapse – no one climbs here, this natural beauty is best admired from a distance.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    With the cliffs only admired from a distance, the birds are free to play… and to pose for the camera of course. 🙂

    Good photo of lovely rocks and my pet hate! Hate because they wake me from my beauty slumber at dawn, their sound being particularly penetrating.
