I was tossing up between Jackdaw and Jay when I heard a Jay screeching during today’s walk in the woods and that clinched my choice for this letter. Jays haven’t featured much in this blog in 2021, though I did report on a feather with a tinge of blue found back in February, and have since found another of these exotic treasures, which is now glued to the relevant page of my nature journal. The vivid blue stripes always make me think of more tropical locations than these often gloomy isles.
