Monitoring Merthyr’s Raven Roost
One day in 2000, local naturalist Mark Evans, unexpectedly spotted fifty or so Ravens emerge from a conifer stand he was walking through. Intrigued, he returned a few days later to confirm his theory that these birds were roosting in the area.
Since that first encounter, he has returned each month to count the birds, building a body of evidence showing how this roost fluctuates in numbers through the year and changed over the decade.
