Raven on Rabbit road-kill, Baston

As I was leaving the corner pits of Baston and Langtoft pits yesterday, a couple of Ravens flew low over, heading north. They were a Lincs tick for me. before they had gone far, they circled round and landed in one of the oaks on the Baston Outgang Road. It turns out they had seen a freshly splatted Rabbit and fancied a snack. The only problem as the quantity of traffic, which meant they kept having to go for quick circuits around the fields (hence flight shots). They looked a tad brown at the head end and a bit worn in the wing and tail feathers, both suggesting (at least to me) these were a pair of worn adults.
