Not if they keep their eggs and small chicks protected. If not, as we could see, corvids like crows and ravens can be a problem.

:hi: No tricks. It was pure accident, and then make quickly snapshots or shaky video ( :whistling: ). but there are so many much better pictures from the otter...

Yes there is a lot of great place to go birdwatching in Denmark too :) Especially the birds which live close to water.

I have some of my bird photos here: http://minenaturfotos.blogspot.dk/ The text is in danish though.

A couple of my best photos from the latest days:

:wave: The raven is no problem for the wte. Never heard about that. Not much more than a disturbance. They are neighbours at more places.
No bird today.
