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 5th

No rain - but it was a bit fresher early this morning, and there were more clouds.
We left the house at 6.30 a.m. and went to the ravens field. It was empty again of dogs and their walkers, but there were quite a few seagulls (lesser black-backed ones) about. The jackdaws don't seem to mind intermingling with them.

The first raven to come, again at the far side, near the fence of the allotments, was the companion of the bold raven. She took two scraps, then flew off. She didn not come back.

Walking round, as we got to the middle of the stretch near the wall, one of the young pair appeared. It was not the Roman-nosed one. He also took a couple of scraps and then flew off. 

Next to appear was Otis, the flat-coated retriever. Then a whippet whipped round, and no more ravens came.

Miss Sophie has been doing very well in all her exercises - so well, in fact, that today I let her lead trail, not holding onto it. With all these exercises going on, I'm afraid I was not as diligent in feeding the ravens as I could have been, but Miss Sophie had priority ...

Here is the photo I took a few days ago, of her, sitting, and the ravens:
