There were quite a number of ravens working the ground on the back side of Gavan Hill. I observed one pecking the ground and found that it had been pecking through this layer of plant material. The layer was actually surprisingly tough and I am not sure exactly how it might have formed. I do not know if the raven was seeking food or what.
