“A pair nested successfully in a Lebanon Cedar at SO882446 in Croome Park during 2008 and 2009 fledging at least three young on both occasions. I attach a couple of photos of nest and location in tree”.

“Re Breeding Ravens in Worcestershire

Saw a piece somewhere by Harry Green in which he was asking for confirmed nesting records within Worcestershire. They have in fact nested successfully in Tunnel Hill/Swines Hill Wood at Wood Norton (near Evesham) SP021476, in years 2003 to 2009 inclusive. Unfledged juveniles seen being fed by adults in tree tops with food obtained on regular sorties to nearby Hill & Moor Landfill site”.
