Back at the hazel-hide this evening I continued with my Jay quest. Jays are known to be able to lift their crown feathes and form a crest but you don't often see it. I think this is the female and it was a surprise that she raised her crest like this. I really like the photo, a great image, perfect atmospheric lighting, lots of charachter and a great background.
If you are a regular reader of my blog then you may be sarting to get a bit bored with Jays but they are an amazing bird, colourful, strong, very intelligent and intensely cruel. There's af few more days of Jays to come. Kingfishers are just around the corner and thats going to be the next concentration. In the meantime, I have been baiting the area around the feeding station with Rabbit. As I arrived at the hide tonigh ta Buzzard was very close and I feel it wont be long before I start to get some Buzzard close ups.
