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 24th

Another hot and muggy night - another hot morning. Hot for South Wales, that is ...

We left the house at 6.40 a.m., to a bright an hot sun and a blue sky with no clouds.

No raven calls, and no ravens in the first and then the big field - but as we got to the ravens field, a soft quorking came from one of the huge sycamores next to the footpath separating the big field from the ravens field.
But it was mid-way into the ravens field before one of the young pair came and followed us for scraps. 
After we had gone all the way round and started on our way back, his companion came, following a call from that first raven. He, however, did not approach us - that might have been due to Lola who came bouncing up to say hello to Miss Sophie. 

We went into Pontcanna Fields next - but again, no ravens.

Later in the afternoon, the heat meant we were content just to take a short walk under the big Lime trees, in the deep shade. 
We saw one raven on the way back, investigating a waste paper basket.

Hopefully the forecast turns out right and we'll have a cooler, albeit rainy, rest of the week.
