Shetland Raven (Corvus corax) near Sumburgh

Finally I managed to see real raven (Corvus corax) from close. I was near Sumburgh, Shetland. Somehow until now I never could have a good look on one of these in the wild, they are just too cautious in Europe and the best chance for seeing one is actually a zoo or the Towers of London. As far as I know it is the more common subspecies C. c. corax and not the much rarer C . c. varius, from Iceland and the Faroe Islands, which also had the very interesting color morph called "Pied raven", which sadly went extinct due to excessive killings.

  1. I am proud to suggest the services of D&S Sheetmetal to covered plunger anybody that needs high quality sheet steel fabrication at a fair worth and trustworthy lead times. For occasion, slicing steel sheets is possible using shear, which makes use of shear forces to cut via the steel. There are three choices involved in kind of|this kind of|this type of} slicing – shearing, punching, and blanking. On the opposite hand, fabricators additionally carry out slicing without shear.
