I received a request from Bird Watching magazine a few of weeks go about the pictures I captured of the Ravens at Llandudno when I uploaded a couple of the images to their Facebook page.
They asked me to send them some details about the images saying it might make a good story.
I emailed the details and sent a dozen or so images then forgot all about it.
I bought Octobers issue yesterday and was delighted to see the two images above in print.
They were on the "Your Bird Letters" page with the full story of how I had encountered the Ravens after a small boy had thrown sand into the air which had covered my face and the camera forcing me to return to the car to carefully clean away the wet sand.
If you don't know the tale I then put some broken biscuits onto the wall alongside the car to try and capture the Jackdaws that were nearby.
The Jackdaws were closely followed by Herring Gulls which were then seen off by the Ravens...
... wonderful birds to see up close.
They have edited down my story quite a bit it's all factually correct...
