Just saying Hello to to everyone and also to let you know how happy I was to see the Ravens a couple of days ago. They are much bigger than you think and it must be fantastic to work with these birds.

Do you allow the public to have the birds sit on there gloved hand ?

Regardless they are brilliant and a real joy to see. Keep up the great work.

hello there Ian,

I must apologise most profusely I have just spotted your post from last year. I really should look at the website more often. Yes we used to have H.M. raven Gabriel who was excellent at standing on the fist. With her sadly killed while on service to the crown, we have a new raven called Emyrus who is currently being trained to follow on from the late Gabriel. So if you are ever visiting this way again you will have to pop in and have a go.

Thank you. I forgot myself to check here again. I visit the castle on many occasions through the off season but I visted today and unfortunately did not say hello as you were quite busy with the public and there dogs.

I did get a nice picture though and will make a point of saying hello and hopefully have a chat about the birds.
