    The Arnside Ravens seem to eat a lot of dead fish and drowned salt marsh sheep and lambs which are often caught in the quick sands.

    Upper plumage was browny grey and pale below. Legs not visible. Upper and lower mandibles were definitely jet black and the most noticeable feature of the short sighting.

    Yes Dan on Church Hill.
    Unfortunately the Chiffchaff not been back since and was only here for about 5 seconds- not enough for a quick photo.
    Could have been a Siberian !
