I just wanted to share with you this incredible bit of video. Every time I stop stroking Merlina she nips at my hand for more attention. pic.twitter.com/9utpu7Okjm— Ravenmaster (@ravenmaster1) March 3, 2017
The Tower of London's Ravenmasters are often overlooked in favour of their better-known Beefeater colleagues, but as this video shows, looking after the Tower's feathered residents has its perks.
