Carking cares

Cark is the harsh noise made by a carrion crow. They do sound as though they have a lot on their minds, maybe that's why cark also means burden.

Carking is an archaic term for something worrisome. I hope nothing happens today to carken you with carking doubts.

The UK, Alex ... I've forgotten the name. Hawkworth, Walkwoth something like that?

Warkworth - that's it. It's a big place, that's just one section.

I think it'd be easier to fit in than some of the others I've blogged about, Leandra.

Sounds fairly similar, Mac.

It's an atmospheric sound isn't it, Oscar.
