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.

May 11th

Another cold and grey day, no sunshine in the morning, and gloves still needed to be worn.

We left the house at 6.45 a.m., not having heard raven calls earlier.

We followed the route along the quarry field again. The companion of the bold raven picked us up at the top of that field, before we got into the small arboretum - and she followed us into the first part of that arboretum. She picked up her couple of scraps and flew off in between.
Then we entered the ravens field - meeting Karen and Bas. 
Miss Sophie was very well behaved, and today did not try to eat Bas. 
While we were chatting, the bold raven came. He did not even mind Bas (on the lead) and Karen being near! So he got his scraps, and more as he followed us along the edge of the ravens field. 

Miss Sophie has now accepted the bold raven, and does not lunge at him. I did more exercises with her, hoping that at some time in the future I can let her run free.

We'll keep to this routine for the time being. Hopefully we'll get to the ravens nest in the afternoons.
