I visit a known Raven nest site yesterday while back in west Clare to see how the chicks were developing.  As you can see from the photos below the five birds in this nest are just ready to leave and it is amazing that this old pair have produced and managed to successful raise four to five hatchlings every year no matter what the elements throw at them.
