A Word On The Raven from Greg Morgan, RSPB Site Manager Ramsey & Grassholm
UK breeding population: pairs: 7,400 pairs
Ravens have the oldest association with RSPB Ramsey Island of any of the island's breeding birds. The vikings probably encountered them during raids into Pembrokeshire in the 8th-10th Centuries as they named the island 'Hrafn-ey', old Norse for 'Raven's Isle'. Over time this name morphed into the familiar 'Ramsey' in use today.
Between 2-4 pairs breed each year on the island's wild cliffs, building a large ramshackle nest from heather branches. Pairs can mate for life, using the same nest site year after year.
In autumn, flocks of up to 100 birds gather to take advantage of the glut of grey seal afterbirth as the pupping season gets underway. With an impressive vocal repertoire of 33 call types, the majestic male raven, the 'sentinel', guards the precious territory year round, the skies of Ramsey filled by his tumbling display flight and loud, unmistakable calls announcing the island as his own.
