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.

Sunday, Feb 21st

Well, the weather didn't stay the same ... rain overnight and in the early hours of the morning. There were many robins singing to each other before dawn, but no raven calls.

I went out at 7.40 a.m., to a grey sky with no hint of sunrise. It was cold, but the rain quickly faded to a drizzle and then stopped by the time I had got to the top of the big field.

As yesterday, however, the quarry pair arrived as soon as I stood still, then the young pair came swooping in from over the toddlers' playground while I got the scraps out. I fed both pairs, who were skittish, with good reason: more blackheaded seagulls were circling over our heads.
