Brian Carruthers sent in this email regarding yesterday's report about  Ravens around the Croke Park area...

Apparently been nesting there for the past 3 years, this year about 40m up the side of the main frame just inside the gate of the cusack stand croke park. It's one of my weekly deliveries. Here are a few shots taken with my new walkabout/travel camera Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (65x optical zoom).
