Corvid Wars

When a raven came visiting, drawn to something it had spotted along the edge of one of Hughie's abandoned pig enclosures, it was watched by....

....a pair of hooded crows which settled in a nearby tree to wait until....

....the raven took off, when they launched a noisy and sustained attack until they had driven it off.

There's constant aerial warfare over Ormsaigbeg's croft lands. The corvid species chase each other. The crows chase the buzzards, which are also chased by the gulls. The eagles are chased by everybody, including the oystercatchers and some ducks.
