Banquet of death

The Lewis peatlands are vast, and I will admit to being bleak on a cold November morning. However a ‘murder’ of Ravens drew attention to one area recently which turned out to be a dump of animal offal.

Nearly 300 Ravens, 40 Hooded Crows, two White tailed Eagles and a duo of Golden Eagles feasted on the macabre stramash strewn across the peat and sphagnum. Almost as bizarre was a Snow Bunting getting in the mix. Surely finding seeds rather than going carnivorous like a South Georgia Pintail?
