Spotted this bird a week ago in Hampstead Heath. Does anyone know what it is?
That looks like a jay to me, with the slight markings round the eye and the hint of the speckled bit on top of the head. The angle's unluckily missing all its cool features!
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
The beak is typical of a jay, plus the facial plumage colours.
