Carrion Crow or Raven ?

Hi Jared1970, the Raven is a massive bird with a head and bill to match. It is unlikely that you would encounter one in the area where the image was taken. Most are seen in upland areas to the west of England, Wales, the Lake District and Scotland.

While agreeing with Chris I

While agreeing with Chris I just wanted to point out that raven does occur as a coastal species in the southwest including Dorset

I'll look out for one next time I'm down that way, are there any particular likely spots to view one?

There were three young birds

There were three young birds at Hengistbury Head in December and Dulston Country Park is a good spot for Raven and Peregrine

Both reasonably local to me, I'll keep a keen eye out next time I'm that way, thanks.
