We appear to have a jay living nearby. It being a species I've only rarely noticed (their ecological niche seeming being occupied by magpies in most places I've lived), I'm quite chuffed at this.

We have a pair who come round in the autumn to steal apples. Lovely birds and very smart.

Pardon me if I'm not exactly raven at your joke there, so don't trying crowing at me.

(Royston's town emblem is the hooded crow. Ironically, the first time I saw one of those corvidae was hopping around the verges at one of the Berlin zoos. I've certainly never seen one here. Oh, it also appears on the North Herts council crest. Since Royston is at the very top of Herts, it's appropriate that the crow sits above the two harts.)

... sounds like the subject line of a "personal enhancement" spam missive.
