People visiting Knaresborough Castle in North Yorkshire were in for a treat. They were being greeted by a talking crow.
Two visitors especially, Lisa and Mark Brooks heard the bird chattering inside the castle grounds and started filming.
I found it absolutely hilarious. It must be a local, it has a proper Yorkshire accent. We were there for 15 minutes and it switched between saying ‘darling’ and ‘love’. Other people started coming over and were just in shock.Lisa Brooks
The clip shows the pied crow rustling a twig before leaping onto a wall and greeting the couple.
This is not the first time of course that a crow or a raven spoke to someone. They are really intelligent animals and people (scientists) are starting to wake up to the fact.
