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.

June 17th

There was bright sunshine when we left the house at 6.30 a.m., and the sky was a clear blue, without any clouds whatsoever. 
But the wind from the NE was so icy cold that at the end of our walk I wished I had worn gloves!

We went to the patch behind the toddlers' playground and then to Pontcanna Fields because I am hoping to see if there are any raven fledglings around.
There were none today, nor were there any raven calls, and the Roman-nosed raven, who came the last time we went that way, also did not come.

Later in the afternoon it was hot because the icy wind had died down. So we had to walk in the shade of the huge lime trees, along Pontcanna Fields, which was being cut. 
A raven or two were visible in the distance, but we were too far away to see who it was - and it was too hot to venture onto the shade-less expanse of grass.
