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.

If you right-click on the image and open it in a new tab, you can then zoom in to see more details.

May 4th

It was far less chilly when we went out at 6.50 a.m. than it had been forecast. 
We went directly to Pontcanna Fields and did some of our exercises. Miss Sophie is learning fast, but dogs and squirrels in her field of vision still distract her a lot.

I threw some scraps to a lone raven - one of the young pair. Then he was joined by his companion. He hadn't called, though.

However, they then both called - and suddenly we were surrounded by three dozen crows. I counted them. 
The ravens tried to scare them off, without success.
They then retreated in view of this huge crowd. 
So we retreated home as well.
