Raven courtship

On a rare visit to friends in Malvern this weekend, we went walking across Midsummer Hill Iron Age Hill Fort near British Camp in the Malvern Hills. Coming down from the fort we caught sight of a large bird soaring above. Initially we thought it was a Buzzard, but it was a Raven, soaring, diving & looping in courtship display, the female flying below. I had no idea Ravens were so large, wingspan greater than a Buzzard.
