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.

July 5th

We went out at 6.30 a.m., it was again overcast and a bit cooler than yesterday, but when we got back an hour later, the sun started to come out.

In the ravens field, both ravens were present, but the one with the pale feathers on the chest simply does not compete for scraps. He only goes to take them once the bold one has gone off to make his holes in the ground. 
When I throw a scrap while the bold one, albeit gone away, still can see this, he comes back and grabs it, flapping his wings at the other one.

Today Miss Sophie went up to say hello to Toby, the lovely Border Collie with the blue and brown eye. He was wary because in their two previous encounters she'd attacked him. Today, it was all wagging tail from her! 
I was happy with that, because I do like Toby ...
