Make Time for Nature, February

Exceptionally important areas within our designated National Park are the stunning headlands and sea cliffs along Jersey’s north coast.

In addition to providing the very best of bracing winter walks, headlands such as Les Landes offer opportunities for some random moments of bird watching and, as February’s challenge, we suggest you keep an eye out for the Raven. Ravens are large and heavily built members of the crow family and Jersey has several breeding pairs. Sometimes, even as early as February, a few might already be preparing their nests in a crevice or on a cliff ledge. Listen for their deep croaking call which is a good sign of their presence. 

Did you know? In their early spring courtship flight, male Ravens often fly upside-down. Impressive, or what?
