My dear Corinna,
Sterling effort for the first photo. Alas it is not a Jay so you can’t (yet) have a cleverness badge. I must admit that these photographs were sent to me by a very close friend so I am unable to tell you what the box is in the photo. Looks like a thermostat (which I am sure you deduced) but can’t be sure. It was not taken at my place but in a zoo/gardens.
No more clues...
Here’s your second photograph and you have one guess. GO FOR IT CORINNA.
Not a jay? Just testing you there. After seeing the little fella grown up a bit, I am now plumping for a bird of prey of some description. It has the look of a hunter about it so will go for.....(pulls name out of hat) ........a ..... no that won't do (I have no idea who put that piece of paper in there with 'orange cat' written upon it - must have been Biggles) .....wait a bit (pulls another name out)..... yes... I know ...a kite. Just a small badge will do by the way - doesn't have to have flashing lights adorning it or anything like that - although a little bit of ribbon will be just dandy - but not pink.
Love from Corinna
