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.

April 27th

It was a bit chilly when we left the house at 6.45 a.m. (yeah, I know: roll out of bed a bit earlier ...), but the sun had already dried off the heavy dew on the grass not shaded by the trees.

Yesterday afternoon, we saw the fence and the posts being removed from the enclosure where I fed the ravens. Therefore I did not expect to see the ravens this morning. We did hear them in the distance, but none came.

With the sun rising earlier day by day, the birds are adapting their presence accordingly. Thus instead of ravens, we came across a group of jackdaws when we walked back. Also, the seagulls were not around, they seem to come earlier in the morning as well.

We'll try for an earlier start tomorrow - our excuse for today is that there was an obedience class yesterday evening, so we were rather sleepy today, both of us!
