Huawei's larger than life raven in London

Huawei's larger than life raven in London

Research undertaken by mobile phone manufacturer, Huawei, has found that one in five of people want to capture wildlife on camera if they could get close enough.

And the bird that has remained most elusive to the British public is the raven, with only two per cent of the UK population likely to have seen one in the wild near where they live.

And now, to bring wildlife closer to people in cities around the UK, Huawei has supersized these elusive Ravens - making them five times bigger than they are in real life - so they are easier to get a perfect shot of with the Huawei P20 Pro, which comes equipped with three camera lenses and a 5x hybrid zoom.

Justin Costello, Head of Marketing at Huawei UK, said: "With summer finally here, it's great to know how passionate the British are about wildlife and photography. With the help of its three Leica lenses, 5x hybrid zoom and powered by AI, the Huawei P20 Pro smartphone can help you get the perfect shot. As part of our continued commitment to making things possible we are helping people in the UK get up close to the most elusive of British wildlife, the Raven, and with our super-sized birds touring the UK we are offering the chance to win the ultimate wildlife photographer's dream - a luxury safari trip to South Africa."

One raven has been installed on Potters Field near the Tower of London whilst other ravens will tour the UK this weekend, visiting the likes of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, York, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Cardiff.
