This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

Nov 2nd, 2009

It was still a bit windy today, but no rain. We again met Bas and his mum Karen, but I thought we'd better all go on together and see what the ravens make of it.

However, once in the usual field, there was a van, and workers. So the chance of ravens coming down to us were pretty much nonexistent.

I did throw the obligatory piece of meat into the plot - we walked round, and one raven came from the trees on the allotment side - but he swerved off when he saw the workers coming out of the van. He settled on the top of the middle tree (one of those growing against the wall) and stayed there the whole time we walked around. 

Now that most of the leaves have gone, thanks to the gales on Sunday (yesterday), he was nicely visible, even from that distance.

I walked round one more time after Bas and Karen had left us, but nothing doing ...
