Last week I chanced to look out into our garden and saw this wonderful jay. I was taken a bit by surprise as we’ve never had one in the garden before but it was lovely to see it hopping around the trees and even taking a big chunk out of the fat balls!
According to the RSPB they are shy woodland birds but can also be found in parks and gardens. In the autumn months they can travel further afield on the look out for acorns so perhaps that’s what brought it to our garden, particularly as the squirrel has been burying lots of nuts around the lawn for months now. [For those of you who read the squirrel post I made last month, you’ll be glad to know his wound looks like it’s completely healed now].
