This morning when I finished work I went up to the Roque itself to relax and admire the view. Helen Loth kindly agreed to take a photo of me with my book and the telescopes.
While we were doing that, Carmelo the raven came to say “Hello”. Well no, her really cae to see whether I had anything nice to eat. But he stayed to have a look at “The Seer’s Stone”, my anthology of children’s stories, which mentions him.
He’s a Canarian raven (Corvus corax canariensis), which means he’s very clever, but even so, I doubt that he can actually read English.
