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.

March 26th

Unfortunately, I only managed to leave the house at 6.55 a.m. ... in spite of a hint of a watery sun behind thin, grey clouds.
It was mild, with a touch of damp. 
Again, there were no raven calls when I entered Llandaff Fields.

Today, the quarry pair came flying in as I approached the enclosure in the big field. They started picking up the scraps, with their usual skittishness, and while they were doing so, I noticed two ravens, sitting on the top branch in two trees in the spinney, observing what whas happening, but not calling.

It took a few minutes before they came flying to the ground - it was the young pair.
Both pairs did not seem to want to hang about much today - in spite of Llandaff Fields being practically empty of dogs. So I got rid of the scraps pretty fast - they did eat them all - and went back home.

We'll see if I can manage an earlier start tomorrow ...
