    A very sad but wonderful story. Thanks for the insights, I love Anglesey!

    Love the story Damh, but do you know that in contrast to the myth, the reality is that those ravens at the tower of London dont stay out of choice, their wings are clipped so that they can only fly to a certain height. But they dont like the tourists knowing that 😉

    Wing clipping is a common practise in farming ducks & geese were birds are denied their birth right to fly, though it is commonly presumed that they must love their owners/farmers to stay with them!
