Ravens courting

Today I watched a pair of Ravens perform thier aerial courtship display in the up-draught by a cliff edge near Whitesands. One of them kept flipping upside down beneath the other so they were face to face. It was pretty spectacular as it was very windy and they were flying fast at times. I hadn't seen this behaviour before and it really stopped me in my tracks as they were very close! I never know what to expect when I venture on to the coastpath at the moment. Yesterday I got hissed at by an Adder that I startled. What an amazing time of year we are in...
