ST0271 : Jay

taken 7 years ago, near to St Hilary, The Vale of Glamorgan/Bro Morgannwg, Great Britain

The Jay is a large and colourful bird yet is rarely seen. Its harsh call is often heard when walking in woodland however. Being a member of the Crow family it is highly intelligent and particularly alert to intrusion in its home territory and its call as it flies to safety alerts all inhabitants of the woodland to our presence. For this reason it is sometimes known as the Watchman of the Woods. When rarely seen in the open and flying to the nearest woodland cover it is identifiable by its large size and obvious white rump.
