I've been interested in Raven's since seeing their airial dispaly's on Holyhead Mountain, Anglesey....my son and I were fascinated with the way one in particular would launch from a cliff and then drop, inverted, for several feet, caw loudly and do it again repeatedly.
My son asked "why?"
I just said "'Cos they can and obviously enjoy it"!!
Tarquins story is wonderful and inspiring...you should consider a book.....and sincerely wish you well for the future. Living in Cambridge our largest are the Carrion's....I liken them to mini ravens and as there are a few localy have found them quite ...wow....!! And very inteligent - more so than some of the local teenagers....ahem!!
Take care and the VERY best of luck,

Thanks so much for a great day. Being in such close contact with those guys really is quite magical. Really hope we get up to see you again soon.

Thanks so much for a brilliant time today - I'm still a bit speechless that I have had this opportunity to have such close contact! Your love and hard work is obvious to all in the fantastic condition of your birds and the special relationship you have with them.

Really enjoyed reading about your corvid work. Growing up in Canada, ravens were a normal winter sight - loved seeing them tease dogs! I miss seeing them now that I am down in Bournemouth, but I will check out your site again when I need a top up!

Hi, Do you ever allow visits? I live in Cardiff but I would sincerly love to see the birds close up.
Posted by Ashleigh Mullen and my Dad Andy on November 04, 2008 - 8:36 pm
What an amazing project. It must be an experience living amongst all those interesting birds! I couldn't believe it when my teacher at South Ascot Village School (Mrs Hill) said she lived with them. My Dad was really interested and then I told him it was also going to be on Autumnwatch. We both thought it was great. The birds looked so intelligent as they seemed trained.

Great to see someone helping the image of and raising Ravens, one of the most interesting birds in the world. We have just a few around the New Forest area, but nothing like the number that should be around. I fell in love with Corvids as a lad, helping a couple to health in 1976 and 1985 (rooks)- a black headed gull too ! Let us know when you start doing displays, etc
Keep up your great work

Great feature on Autumnwatch last night and wonderful to see ravens again - my favourite bird. Straight on the website this morning for a good look. Keep up the good work - I will be in touch again.

What a fantastic place you have there, and I'd like to thank you on beahlf of the many fantastic birds that you have rescued and look after. Marvalous birds like the Raven and other members of te Crow family need establishments like yours to help raise their profile and educate people about their many great qualities.Enjoyed seeing you on Autumnwatch.All the very best guys.
Posted by Sue Mintram-Mason on November 04, 2008 - 12:03 pm
Superb feature on Autumnwatch, I have dealt with crows for over 30 years now so was much encouraged by your work, congratulations. I have a one eyed crow who is now 27 years old and recently lost my old Rook at well over 30!!

I too saw you on Autumnwatch - Mystic is truly a beautiful bird and a wonderful ambassador. I wish you all the best in your work.
Posted by Michael Argyrou on September 12, 2008 - 12:03 pm
Really enjoyed the Autumnwatch item. Had no idea a place like yours existed in England, something I always dreamed of doing myself. Was looking at volunteering in Austria just to be near ravens again.
Hopefully you take in 'mature' volunteers? The website is of great interest to me. Thanks for all the great work you've done and continue to do.

I saw a feature on the BBC Autumnwatch tonight and it immediately caught my attention since I adore ravens. If there's any way I could visit and/or help you I will! You are doing a fantastic job and I hope Raven Haven continues to thrive.
My plush raven Bran and I salute you!

Well done guys! A fantastic story, and very well written up. I feel privilaged to be a little part of it, and I feel happy to know there are all those birds who have benefited from your hard work over the years. Don't give up on a fantastic talent you have!

Good work! Always nice to see someone putting themselves out for the Corvid family. Most people cant understand what all the fuss is about,especially when your not getting paid for doing it.
I do a similar thing for Eurasian Jays. Though many different birds pass through my hands. Corvids have a special appeal that most people in their world of material gain would never understand. I take my hat off to you. good luck!

Hi guys. Well, i've just spent the last few hours reading everything on your website - i got so engrossed with Tarquin's story i had to read it all in one go! It's great to have met some of the family and relate to some of the stories as i remember them! I feel privilaged to have been around for some of it as otherwise i would never have been given the opportunity of seeing how majestic these birds truly are - thank you. I think you do a great job and look forward to reading future stories.

Just came across your website via a member on Crows@yahoogroups.com I also came across Corvid Aid last week, I didn't know there were any actual corvid rescue places in the UK, so I am delighted! I rehab birds (most species except birds of prey and water/sea birds) in South Devon. I adore corvids and jackdaws are my favourite bird, I have had long term corvids but like most rehabbers lack space ( I only have a small garden with 2 small aviaries and a insulated shed for baby and sickly birds. I am sometimes looking for homes for disabled corvids, I guess you probably lack space too though?!
Anyway, good to meet you, do come and join Crows group if you like,and my bird hospital my space is here www.myspace.com/birdhospital
Keep up the good work!
Hearty caws!

Excellent Site. Well done to you for all your work.
Posted by Chris Rowley on April 27, 2008 - 6:42 pm
Love your web site. Thank you for your help with the advice on our injured Jackdaw. We are looking after him until his new feathers come and he seems very happy in his safehouse! We will send you some pictures via e-mail soon and let you know how he gets on. Thanks again and keep up the amazing work at Raven Haven. Chris & Mel X

A lovely site and gorgeous birds! Good luck with the Corvid Center!
Posted by Dancincrow on April 19, 2008 - 2:04 pm
I just found your site & I love it. It is truly an amazing experience to be in the company of a Raven (or Crow), they are the most intelligent birds & a constant source of wonderment. It's nice to see that you have such a love for these wonderful souls, keep up the great work.
Posted by Igraine Hustwitt Skelton on April 16, 2008 - 4:37 pm
I think what you do is wonderful, I take in injured crows, magpies and other corvids, it is so rewarding to help then return to full health and then that moment you re release them, when you can is such an awe inspiring moment
Posted by peter on April 13, 2008 - 06:22 pm

wonderful babies you're hatching there...
I'm looking forward for coming to your raven haven as soon as I'm coming to the UK
Posted by Cranbourne Year 6 on April 4, 2008 - 10:54 am
It was very interesting to read the story of how you found Tarquin. We also love the cute pictures of the baby and adult ravens. We also like the fact that you save injured birds.
