"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Augustus John, R.A.

Tea at my Mum's tonight and this Jay in the back garden. Usually a very wary species this bird was surprisingly confiding.

Another smasher, Stuart. I don't seem to see jays very often up here.

They have increased quite a lot around here over the last few years and I now see more than I used to do. Its only in the last few months or so though that mum has started getting them in her garden.
