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.

April 14th

This morning was very grey and rather cold. There was no sun, so we again only left the house at 7.15 a.m.
No raven calls, instead two of the now breeding seagulls were having a duet, from the rooftops and one of the trees at the first field. 
Its being 'rubbish day' today, they were on the look-out to get at the thin food-waste bags and warning all others off.
Indeed, on the way back we saw that they had torn open a couple of those bags, with some waste spread into the road.

We walked the long way, doing some brief obedience exercises on the way, and at the corner of the ravens field and the quarry field, we saw about seven jackdaws on the ground, but no ravens. Nor were there any calls.
