Our regular Tuesday walking group took a stroll around the woodpecker trail on Tuesday 28 Jan and saw a pair of ravens, calling and displaying where the pylon line runs down the slope. What with this and the lesser spotted woodpecker sighting the other week, this is a spot well worth checking out!
It's about 5 years since ravens last bred at RSPB The Lodge, but this reserve played a key role in their re-establishment in Bedfordshire. They now breed in several locations in the county.
