This morning Ravens creating a bit of a quandary as a young  bird had come down from the nest area and had 3 security men keeping a eye one it as they was worried that it might attack someone.

One of the adults was on top of a nearby building keeping a watchful eye on the youngster when I had to leave the young bird was stood on roof of the mobile fish van with now 4 security guards watching it's every move.
