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.

After a prolonged absence, I'll pick up the town raven diary again.

It is about a year since we first encountered the ravens, and much has changed. During the summer, due to Miss Sophie, I did not go to the ravens field much because she needed so much basic training. We spent a lot of time in Pontcanna Fields where there were a lot of crows and the ravens kept away.

Since the Autumn Equinox we went back to the Ravens Field, and a pair of ravens was there.
However, as the mornings got darker and darker, I could not make out who they were - except that the bold raven was not amongst them.

With the clocks back on GMT since last Sunday, and thus more daylight, we have been met by this pair of ravens every morning. They usually picked us up as we approached the toddlers' playground.
